Tired of the same old turkey leftovers! Don't know what to do with the dark meat! Here's a recipe for you. I received this recipe from a friend 20 years ago. Chicken works well also.

Excellent! I added a little garlic (2 cloves) and left the lid off in the last 15 min. to brown the cheese a bit. This one is a keeper.
