I started making these years ago on Christmas Eve when we were expecting family and friends from out of town and I wanted to have dinner ready to go when they arrived at our house . Over the years I have been asked for this simple recipe many times! If I don't have rotisserie chicken, I cook a couple of breasts in chicken bouillion, shred those and add the lemon juice and continue on. These are yummy year round and are a nice break from heavier, more elaborate holiday food. Enjoy!
