“I came up with this variation based on a dish my grandmother used to make - this is a great one-dish meal that will please the whole family. Once you try it a few times, you can get creative and add some of your favorite ingredients. You can cut the cooking time by using frozen chicken patties as indicated in the recipe below. It is also delicious when made with leftover ham and cream of mushroom soup.”
