MY REVIEW

Very yummy comfort food! I had roasted a chicken and made mashed potatoes the night prior so I used leftovers to create this dish. My family loved it, to include two picky toddlers! So it's a keeper, and a great way to use up leftovers, making it a great weeknight option!

I loved this recipe. I substituted turkey Italian sausage for the ground chicken and it turned out fabulous!

Hmmmm...I don't see anything special about this recipe and I felt like it was really bland. Ground beef would have been better for flavor. Not a hit in my house.

This is now one of our favorites. I used ground turkey instead of ground chicken - but everytime I make it for someone else they ask for the recipe!
