    OceanLuvinGranny's Note:

    I got this recipe from a friend a few years ago. It quickly turned into a family favorite. Everybody requests it when they come to our house for dinner. It is a good way to use leftover chicken. You can use white meat turkey as well if you have any of that left over at Thanksgiving.

      This was delicious! A hit for my son-in-law's birthday. I used green enchalada sauce instead of milk to thin the sour cream. I also used a mix of cheddar and white cheese. Very good!
