    ~*Sue*~Chef's Note:

    This is one of my most requested "chicken stuff" recipes. I found it in the Cooking Light magazine (around 1998). Most of my friends don't even know that it is a ligher version of a rich calorie laden recipe because it is so tasty. I usually serve with a mixed green salad and my version of Mexican rice. This is great left over cold or hot!

      Came across this gem while searching for dishes that could be prepped ahead of time, bagged in their individual components, assembled on sight and cooked in a dutch oven. If you want to see what the phrase "happy campers" is supposed to look, and sound, like, try this one out.
