Comes from 'Adventures in Wine Cookery' (1965), a collection of recipes from California wine makers. As the contributor suggests, it's great party fare. You don't have to tell that there's cream of mushroom or chicken soup in it. This is worth the effort for a special potluck or buffet dinner party. It saves time to cook the chicken the night before making the rest of the recipe, giving the broth time to defat in the fridge. Then you can cut up the cold chicken while you cook the macaroni.
