MY REVIEW

Easy and Tasty! A definite keeper. The only change I made, was, I used boneless, skinless chicken tender, which I lightly seasoned with seasoning salt. So glad I doubled the reciped, because my family gobbled it right up!

Since i didn't have all the ingredients the recipe called for i had to put my own touch on it. The first change i made was to the chicken. I used boneless, skinless chicken tenders. I cut them into bit size chucks, seasoned them and baked them for 20mins. Instead of using mayonnaise i use Campbell's cream of celery. i only had green peppers and onions so i cut them up and fried them in butter over high head for 5 mins. I added aMcCormmics Green pepper and garlic seasoning to the onions and green peppers. Finally i mixed it all and baked for 20 min. IT CAME OUT PERFECT!! However, i didn't use the chips.

It was more expensive to make than my regular meals. Due to the cost, I will probably only make it monthly. It was crunchy, salty, creamy and fairly quick to put together. It is definitely worth everyone making at least once!
