    This was deliciouse, l made it for the senior's tea at church.. I cut strips of chicken breast instead of the seafood. The wine really mellowed the dressing. Janet. FE

    Wow-this was really good. Great for a warm spring or summer evening dinner but also fancy enough to take to a potluck or dinner party. Be sure to drain everything really well. I served it with warm garlic bread.
