"I put together this recipe while going to college," recalls Anita Keppinger of Philomath, Oregon. "To save time later, I place the thawed chicken and salad dressing in the pan in the morning, cover it and refrigerated it until I get home. When it's time to cook dinner, I simply sprinkle it with the cheese and bake."

"I thought it was just okay. Not terrible, but not great either. I probably won't make this again."

"I make this at least once a month. I usually make 3 lbs of meat at a time. I cube up the left overs and use some of it for the next night's meal and/or freeze for future meal."
