Jennie's creamy chicken

    1 hour 10 min

    This is a special chicken recipe from school days slightly adapted over the years but one of my favourites. Great for using leftover chicken, too.

    Was looking for something tasty but simple to make with left over roast chicken as the weather's very hot right now and found this recipe. It's easy to make AND it tasted DELICIOUS.  -  15 Jul 2013
