I made this recipe for a potluck I was going to, and it's great! The recipe was easy to follow, there weren't any hard to find ingredients, and it was really quick to put together. Next time I am probably going to add more cheese to it. Thanks for a good party dish :)

Great recipe and easy to add your own spin to it. I used stewed tomatoes and a little more cheese. Also you can use Italian sausage instead of chicken. Yummy.

I recently made a variation of this with my family, and it was delicious.

To reduce fat & calories, just use less cheese. You can substitute diced tomatoes rather than tomato sauce
