  1. Hi LInda! Delightful chicken dish! Please come over and share this with the Food on Friday crowd over at Carole's Chatter. Cheers

  2. This looks good Linda. I will make this. Thank you. Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's.

  3. Another one I have to try. Sounds like this will be a bit spicy, and I love spicy. And it has cream cheese, one of my favorites. Going to make this one for sure.
    Happy Mother's Day to everyone.
