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.
