"I used the food processor to do my chopping and used leftover roast chicken along with leftover rice from Chinese take-out. This will serve 2 persons as a main dish or 4-6 as a side dish. As always, feel free to switch the meats and veggies to your taste."

I made this using a wild rice mix, chicken and 1 cup frozen mixed veggies and really enjoyed this. Quick, easy and delicious!!! Made foe the Pick Me! recipe tag game. UPDATE Made this again Sept 17 2018 omitting the eggs and adding mushrooms and this delicious.
