My friend Jeff made this and brought us left overs. We ate the huge container in one sitting it was sooooooo good. The flavor was unbeatable. Even though it has a little kick to it, my two year old couldn't get enough! I cooked it and replaced the water with chicken broth and left out the chicken base. I used chicken thighs and it was too greasy. I would think you could just pull the chicken off of a store bought rotisserie chicken and make is super simple.
