I got this recipe from a friend at my bridal shower. It freezes well and is one of my favorite dishes. You could also substitute cut up cooked turkey for the chicken.

  3. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Stir constantly until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat.

This was a good make-ahead meal. It's difficult to find a creamy recipe that freezes well. We thought it was a little rich. Next time I will try to replace some of the half & half with whole milk.

Easy to make and freezes beautifully. The flavor was a little "blah" to me (hence only 4 stars) but this has definite potential! Next time I will play with the spices to rev it up a bit. Thanks for posting!

I have made this 2x in the past couple weeks and it turned out great each time. very good for potlucks. easy to follow recipe and made with few ingredients. I did add some dry chicken seasoning (chef paul's poultry seasoning) as I used canned/unseasoned chicken. perfect! thanks munchkinland for the great recipe!!
