Very delicious! Made with left over chicken which made this go together sooooo much faster. I did add some minced onion and garlic (sauteed first) because I love those flavors but followed the rest of the instructions. (Guess I changed them somewhat but this is delicious and fast and one to use over and over). Thank you for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2012 tag game.

Our family has made this recipe for years. It is excellent. The only difference is that I usually add chopped onions and instead of the American Cheese, we add 4-8 oz of cream cheese. I will often substitute leftover turkey or baked chicken leftovers. It doesn't need to be breast meat. Very yummy and easy.
