My grandmother had bought a couple of extra cans of chicken meat, I had no idea what to make other than chicken salad and I didn't want that. So I got in the kitchen and started putting things in a pot. I have 2 teenage sons that are picky but they went back for bowl after bowl. I think the first pot lasted a couple of days. I used a small stock pot and it was about 3/4 full. I say this recipe feeds 10 or more because I also made the same thing using the chicken breast for my office roughly about 40 people and I came home with an empty pot and everyone had a bowl. I have learned to put into smaller containers and freeze the rest.
