This recipe is 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. —Joyce Carpenter, Darlington, Indiana

"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."
