A Suburban Epicurean Original
Cooks Note: I made this at the request of my son who names this as one of his Top 10 Dinners Mom makes. I guess I should be thankful there are 10 that he actually likes! This is a classic, and easy enough to make on a weeknight. Enjoy!

A must try chicken idea. Like the serving idea of noodles, a good filler-up.
