I really liked this but I may mess with it more as far as seasonings and cooking time. I baked it 1 hr. which I think was too long. Next time I will check it at 30 min. I'd say probably 30 to 45 min. would be better. I was afraid of the chicken not getting completely done I guess. I wanted to make Chicken Cordon Bleu. I only had 3 chicken breasts though and that wouldn't be enough, so this idea popped into my head (thank You Lord), to ground the chicken and make it into a pie. It was good and very filling with just some mashed cauliflower to go with.
