This was made on 5/31 for mine and my SO's dinner,but most importantly for the " Pick Me Tag " game. ;) While reading the recipe I was VERY intrigued by the addition of Chicken Bouillon. Except for using chicken bouillon powder ,the recipe was made as it was written. I served this over Buttermilk Biscuits. We both enjoyed this very,very,much. Thanks for taking the time to make and post this recipe so others can enjoy it the way we did. " Keep Smiling :) "
