This was wonderful. I made it for my women's outreach and the ladies consumed it so quickly the were asking for more.
I am not assigning any stars, as I have not made this filling. But I used the technique in this recipe for the family three times now, using whatever leftover chicken salad we had on hand. My husband is always making a huge batch of chicken salad for the kids' school lunches. He tries a new recipe every time. Before I use the leftovers in this ring, I make sure to add the cheese included in this recipe. It has always been so good. It's nice garnished with browned almonds as well. Thanks, Parkers Mom, for posting.
I used to sell Pampered Chef and had lost my recipe. My 20 year old DS asked every now and then for this. Thanks for posting-he is very happy and so am I.
