From bettycrocker.com they credited it to eatbetteramerica.com I found it while looking for low calorie high taste substitutes for my creamy calorie and fat laden favorites. I eat this a lot during training for a marathon b/c it is high in carbs and protein but low in fat! Perfect for all you runners out there! Great for everyone commited to an overall lifestyle change! 2 hours cooktime is chill time. Also, Sometimes I use turkey lunch meat (smoked, highest in protein lowest in fat I can find) instead of cutting up an actual breast.
