I had a wonderful surprise yesterday, I won the 2012 WIPocalypse drawing
Mel did a wonderful job hosting the 2012 WIPocalypse and the 2013 WIPocalypse is well underway and there is still time to join in the fun.

O M G, this dish was Wonderful! I can picture making this instead of the whole turkey dinner for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Now for the Changes
I used thighs instead of breasts – plain cheaper that way. And because I used two packages of thighs (4-5 in each) I went crazy on the cheese and used 12 slices. It wasn’t over-kill but I could have held back a bit and plan to next time. I used Pacific Cream of Chicken soup (in the box) and Imagine Portabella soup (in the box) instead of canned soup and box style broth (organic) and about a 1/4 c Apple Cider Vinegar. If I had any Sherry, it would have been added into the mix, about 1/4 cup. I also seasoned the soup mixture, just a bit, cause its what I do (grab what ever winks at me that day for seasoning, little thyme, oregano, basil, whatever.). Next time I will use the whole 14oz bag of stuffing as the 3 cups I used wasn’t enough.
But remember, I used thighs and more chicken and soup mix than what was called for. I thought by using just the one extra cup of dressing it would make up the difference. Thighs give off a lot of juice.
I was a bit strapped for time and I cooked this on on high in my Ninja Cooker for the recommended 3 hrs. The smells were making my tummy hungry and very demanding!
