This recipe comes from Holly Clegg's Trim and Terrific Freezer Friendly Meals. This actually turned out to be a much lighter version of a family favorite that used a whole stick of butter! Comfort type food that can be made ahead for a quick meal! You can use leftover chicken or purchase a rotisserie chicken from your local deli. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup roasted red peppers which we omitted for family preference. Mushrooms would be a nice addition!
