This is one of my favorite hot dishes to make. I usually use rotisserie chicken, which makes it even easier to make. (If you are watching salt, cook your own chicken and use low sodium soup...as it is a salty dish.) It literally takes 5 minutes to stir together and throw in the frig....then another hour to bake the next day.
I found this recipe in a church cookbook years ago, and since then I have seen may variations.....different types of cheese, adding veggies....they all sound good. But for some reason, I always make it the same way. I guess it's because we love it the way it is!
