    Really simple and yummy, makes for good left overs. This has become a go-to recipe for me when I don’t feel like cooking much but need to use up the chicken in the fridge

    Very delicious! I did not have all the ingredients on hand, so i substituted alfredo sauce for condensed milk and only used the parmesan cheese on the topping.
