Ever since I was tall enough to reach the stove, I've enjoyed cooking. This recipe's one of my favorites—it's so simple, I can make it the night before, throw on the topping at the last minute and take it to a picnic or family gathering. Both my husband and I have lived on farms all of our lives. We grow corn, soybeans and wheat. Our three sons are grown, and we're now the grandparents of six. I've had a job in town since back surgery took me off the tractor. In addition to cooking, I love working in my flower garden—and I'm a big fan of stock car racing, too!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2010

This makes such a pretty presentation for parties and get-togethers. And it tastes really good, too! I add some poultry seasoning (about 1/2 teaspoon -- sorry to be imprecise, but I sprinkle it on the chicken mixture until it looks to be the right amount and then stir it in) to give it a little more pizzazz.
