Made this filling for dinner as I needed something simple with minimal cleanup. We used the chicken to top nachos. The chicken was very moist and flavorful. And I love the fact that it does not contain cream of chicken/mushroom soup or sour cream. Everyone seemed to really enjoy dinner...even my daughter who isn't a big fan of chicken. It is definitely a recipe I will keep on hand. Thanks for sharing Maureen. Made and reviewed for Spring 2011 PAC.
