Just another family favorite & another quick & easy chicken dish I pre-cook ahead of time. I always have pre-cooked cubed chicken in my freezer. The pasta I some tines make the night before & place in a ziplock bag in the ice box. Goes great with some fresh garlic bread & a nice glass of one of my homemade winecoolers.
