"Yummie! I will be making this one often! I used a rotisserie chicken to save time. Really easy and quick to put together, too. Grandkids even liked it!"

"Great basic recipe. I added peas instead of green pepper, garlic, a splash of sherry and a dollop of sour cream."

"Great recipe, clear and simple. The only thing I added was a touch of tarragon. The family raved, so I will make it again. I like simple recipes so I can add my personal touch once I am used to making it."

"This was excellent! You could use this as a chicken pie filling. I served with wide noodles, it was so good. I'm thinking I might add some Parmesan cheese when I reheat it for a different taste. Great recipe and base recipe!!!!"
