This is a recipe that my aunts were kind enough to make our family to help out when we needed some easy meals. Everyone loved it, they were kind enough to share the recipe, which was from another family member who lives in Washington state. This recipe has traveled!
I’ve made a couple modifications. I did not have the pimentos as called for in the recipes. Instead, I roasted a red pepper and used it in lieu of the pimentos. It was quick and easy to do in the oven as I shared a couple of weeks ago.
The recipe also originally called for Montery Jack shredded cheese but I had some Authentic Mexican shredded Queso cheese I had purchased again from ALDI I wanted to use instead. I also didn’t have anymore whipping cream as I had used the remainder for my Basic Alfredo Recipe. I used half and half instead. I’d stick with the heavy whipping cream, though, in the future.
Once again, my Ninja chopper comes in handy to get a great shredded chicken mix without all the work of hand shredding. The official name is the Ninja Master Prep and it is a Ninja in my kitchen! My aunt also said this is what she used to shred it in the meal she made for us.
Thanks to Penny, Aunt Beth & Aunt Paula for sharing this recipe with me!
