"I prepared this last week and it is a hands-down winner. We shared it with a neighbor recuperating from surgery and they loved it as well. This recipe is easy to prepare and oh, so good. I highly recommend it and will be preparing it again and again. As another reviewer said, "Heaven in a skillet!""
