My favorite meal! Can be made with all low (or reduced) fat ingredients, which is a plus. If you love white creamy sauces and chicken, then this recipe is a must! I got this recipe from my mom, and she usually mixes all the ingredients and gives this dish away for baby births, funerals, etc. since it can be frozen and baked later. Extremely tasty!
