Helpful hints

  • 1-1/2 punds cooked chicken is approximately 3 cups. If you wish, use a stewing chicken or a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. Pull meat from bones and chop.
  • Compare brands and buy the lowest sodium canned and bottled ingredients.
  • Freeze 1 cup portions for a quick meal later.
  • Recipe is easy to reduce for a smaller batch.
  • If you are on a protein-limited diet, adjust this recipe by decreasing the portion of meat and cheese.
