    I had this once at a church function, as a kid, and remember loving it. So happy to stumble on the recipe here! Thanks for posting it!

    My one concern is trying to find healthier options for the chowmein noodles & cream of chicken... The chowmein noodles usually have trans fat. I bet one of the local health food stores will have better versions.

    Debbie, if you use rotisserie chicken, do you still use the sauce...or just by itself?

    I just served this (with my slight variations, like whole grain rice & better than bullion to replace chicken broth) & despite my family grimacing at it before they tasted it, EVERYONE ended up really liking it.

    I was happy to see that the chow mein noodles my regular grocery store carries have cut out the trans fat that used to be in them. :) I guess consumers reading labels does make a difference.
