    I was skeptical about this one, but it turned out great! I used a couple of cans of white meat chicken, instead of cooking a chicken breast. Will definitely be making this again.

    Fantastic recipe! Even the grand kids loved it! We even tried it substituting cooked ground chicken and it still was a "hit"! Thanks McCormick for the great recipe!

    This sounds like a recipe my family would enjoy. Plus it's a way to use up leftover roast chicken.

    Yum! So far, everyone likes this. So easy, especially with a Cosrco or Sam's rotisserie chicken.

    This is very good. However I make mine with smoked sausage but it is hard to keep lit.
