“This is a creamy chicken filling topped with a light cornbread and cheese. Very flavorful and yummy. I leave the celery and green peppers out when I make this at home. It does take a while to bake and a little prep time, but is well worth the effort. I've had this recipe for nearly 20 years. I first got it on a cooking bulletin board before the internet existed.”
