Excellent recipe. I omit the onion and pimento also. I have had many requests for this recipe.

I am 42 years old, my mother used to make this for us growing up, and it is yummy, comfort food to my family and I. My brother, 52, is trying to get his wife to make it for him, as I have made it for them in the past. And it always boils down to, MOM. I have seen that a lady won the 1974 award from pilsbury for creating this. YUMMY! TRY IT! I love it just as is except I do not remember my mother putting pimento in it. AT ALL!

I omit the onion and pimientos, but add a little poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and cumin. My entire family loves these! I also use leftover rotisserie chicken to speed things along.
