    This is rich but delicious. Next time I won't use any chicken, it didn't add anything to the recipe but cost in my opinion. My husband and mother both loved this recipe and both are quite hard to please.

    Unusual ingredients, but taste great together! I only used one onion (it was a large one) otherwise I made it exactly as the recipe was written. Wonderful pizza like dinner , can't wait to make it again!
