    I didn't use the canned chunk chicken, instead I used leftover rotisserie chicken. It was a fast cooked meal using leftovers, which I love. Since becoming a field editor for this wonderful magazine, I'm amazed at all the wonderful cooks out there willing to share their great recipes! Keep sharing.

    Girrrlll! What a lifesaver! I forgot to take anything out of the freezer and literally had about 2 hours to come up with something for dinner. This was a perfect solution with homemade buttermilk biscuits and fresh snap beans on the side. My grand kids totally wiped it out. My husband asked if there was enough for him to take to work the next day. There wasn't!! Many, many thanks, Renee. TOH manages to find the best cooks and your recipe is a definite keeper!
