This was a easy and tastey meal. I served it with egg noodles. It went over well. from my 7 month old to my 35 yr old. (lol) ate it the next day for lunch as well. I omitted the cream of chicken, did not have it I replaced it with cream of celery. I also chaged the vegtables.. I just 1 can of mixed vegies.Instead of water I used chicken broth. It helped "up" the chcken taste since I didnt use cream of chicken. It was great! thanks a bunch!
