I first learned how to make this when I was in fourth grade, & have been going back to it ever since. I literally make it whenever I'm bored, hence the name. This recipe can be adapted any way you'd like, so you can use fresh chicken as opposed to canned. However, I use the canned chicken to save time. & from what I hear, it's even better the next day.
