This is a great dish to use left over chicken. These are always a hit whenever I have served them. Super easy, no fail.

What a wonderful way to use leftovers! Loved it! Usually have cooked chicken in freezer so this can in handy for an easy supper. I reserved some of the melted butter for Step 4, mine were done in 20 minutes. Thank you Vicki for sharing.
This recipe was the Pillsbury Bake Off Winner in 1975. You really can't go wrong. It's whats for dinner tonight but with a little cheese, garlic, and assorted spices & veggies I have thrown in to add a little flavor. Don't use canned chicken (that's just gross and wrong) but you can be lazy and use a rotisserie chicken to make prep easier.
Easy and delicious! I added in some garlic powder and cayenne to the chicken mixture, increased the onion amount and used seasoned salt, this was thoroughly enjoyed, thanks Vicki!
