My hubby loves this recipe and request it quite often. I found this recipe many years ago and I have changed it so many times to adapt to my family.

I have used chicken, beef and pork in making these, but my hubby prefers chicken.

I use a deli baked chicken for my recipe as it's easy and ready to debone and get 2 cups from.
