    Quick and easy. My husband has even asked for it again, just made it 2 weeks ago!

    subtituted shrimp in place of chicken (none on hand). Added a bit of garlic with the onions and skipped the parmesan cheese. Delicious and I had enough for lunch next day. Chinchilla

    We LOVED it! I left out the onions and it was still great! My picky eater 8 year old has been begging for it again!!
