My daughter recently bought me some vintage cookbooks. This recipe came from Betty Crocker's Dinner in a Dish, published in 1965. This is a tasty way to use leftover chicken or turkey!

WOW, what a great discovery. I loved this. I did take the easy way and layered the chicken, cheese (fat free) and red pepper instead of chopping and mixing. I thought I was grabbing chicken soup but got a can of mushroom which I only noticed when I opened it. It worked though. I baked this on the bottom oven rack and the bottom layer of the sandwich toasted beautifully. It all turned out yummy and I need to say that the mustard added a real flavor perk.
