  1. I buy rotisserie chicken pieces at Costco and keep them in the freezer for recipes like this. We were under the weather here and I had everything on hand for this so didn't have to drag myself to the store! This was delicious without a lot of work and fuss. Only thing I changes besides the chicken, was adding another garlic clove. Thanks for a keeper. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
  2. This is the best recipe I've ever had. I love it so much a make five gallons and pass out quarts to family and friends. 8 out of 10 love it! �� Mike D.


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
