This dish will not disappoint. It is a bubbling cheesy chicken wonder. I know every one has their stand by recipes, but this one is AMAZING. I promise it will be gone before you can take a picture:) This is also great for a pot luck or if you want to take dinner to a friend, I promise they will be drooling.

    PLEASE NOTE: We generally use canned chicken because we always have it on hand. But this also is great for left over rotisserie chicken. Also, if you do not have mexican cheese, monterey jack works well too.
