Hello! I hope your Monday treated you well this week. I had such a hard time getting out of bed this morning to go to work. How I wish for just one more weekend day. As I'm sure we all wish for that lol!
Today's recipe is ah-mazing!! I came up with it, spur of the moment, when my sister wanted to come over for dinner one evening. It comes together so quickly using pre-cooked chicken and the flavor is incredible. We ate way more than we should have, but there was still a half a pan left. I left it on the counter to cool since it was still piping hot and hopped on the computer for an hour. I couldn't keep my eyes open after awhile, so I decided to go to bed. The next morning, I walked out of my bedroom and smelled garlic. I knew then, that I forgot to put the leftovers in the fridge. UGH! I hate when that happens!! I was so looking forward to leftovers for lunch that day!! Make this recipe, cuz you'll love it, but don't forget about the leftovers, like I did!! Enjoy!!
