“The original recipe is from Grandma's Kitchen Treasured Family Recipes. The fat content was so high that I would never dream of serving it to my family. With the reduced fat contents that I used, I've found this to be delicious. When I don't have leftover cooked chicken, I buy a small precooked rotisserie chicken at the market.”
