This recipe came about as I was rummaging thru pantry and fridge and wondering what 'sounded good' that I could make , throw in the oven, and walk away. Hubby wanted Italian but I was tired of tomato sauce and I had chicken in the fridge I wanted to use. Toss in a few family favorites and BINGO! Done ! This resulted in a new favorite !
