I don't remember where I found the original recipe, but it was rather bland. So I've tweaked it to mine and my families liking. It's so easy to throw together and oh so tasty. If you don't like canned soups you can substitute 2 1/2 - 3 cups white sauce and flavor with chicken bouillon, mayonnaise and remaining spices I used. I've made it both ways and to be honest we love them both. This way is more convenient when in a hurry.

Enjoy!
