Creamy Chicken Boxty

Lynn Dine


Another recipe found on the Taste of Home website while searching for Irish recipes for our Culinary Quest. I posted this as written, but feel free to use whatever type of milk (whole, 2%, skim) and I use butter or oil instead of the cooking spray in my cooking, but obviously will change the calories/fat etc.
