I'm a working mom. Even with my busy schedule, I can make this in the morning and pop it into the oven when I get home. —Barb Jacobsen, Campbell, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:8-10 servings

"Very quick and easy to prepare. I ended up making a glaze for the outside. I am going to try this recipe using ground chicken next time."
