A friend gave me this recipe after she went on and on about how fabulous and easy it is. I have not tried it, but based on her comments, I think it will be good!

I didn't have bouillon cubes so I used chicken stock and had to add some salt and garlic salt. Because of using chicken stock instead of a dry little cube, I ended up with a very fluid sauce, but it still tasted very good. Everyone who ate it loved it. My triplets were to picky to try it.
