    Not sure where I got this recipe, but it's a real favorite with my grandkids. I usually make it earlier in the day and then pop it into the oven when ready for dinner.

      Absolutely delicious! I like spicy, so I added a diced chipotle chile and a couple tablespoons of adobo sauce. VERY good! I also made the cheese as my top layer..just a personal preference. Will definitely make this again!

      What a great use of leftover chicken, this went over well with both hubby & Miss 5 year old and mum who was visiting, easy to put together and a great Friday night dinner. Made as directed minus the olives as we're not fans of them. Thanks for posting!

      I've made a dish VERY similar to this, although instead of the olives, I add chopped/diced Ortega chiles. This doesn't make it hot, just adds more flavor. I also use the roasted chicken from COSTCO and merely shred it ....saves a LOT of time! It was delicious! Thanks!
