 Savory Chicken Vegetable Strudel
Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a way to "sneak" vegetables into a dish, try this one that looks fancy without the fuss. Now that our two sons are grown, I make it for my husband and me. It is definitely a recipe for company as well, though. -Michele Barneson, Washburn, Wisconsin
