I use shredded chicken I pre cook instead of the ground. This is a big hit with all of the family .

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 31, 2014

I made the dish as written but thought for our family I would need to tweak it if I made it again. I really was not all that impressed, but my husband really liked it and wanted me to print up the recipe for one of his friends.

Yum! Yum! Next time I would make plenty of celery sticks to enjoy with this!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2014

Made this today and it was really good! Read the previous reviews and also omitted the water and just used petite decided tomatoes undrained. Also used a stoneware casserole dish that is a little larger than the typical 13X9 pan, so I ended up using almost 5 noodles per layer to completely cover. It had a nice zip, not too hot, but tasted like buffalo wings! It does take a little while to prep, so I may try preparing the night before next time. Will make again for sure.
