I have to admit that I altered Wine2's recipe slightly. I only used 2 cups of chicken and she used 4 cups. Since I had less chicken, I used a smaller baking pan and less parmesan cheese on the top. I kind of switched some of the seasonings around a little too, but I'm sure this tastes pretty much the same as her version. It's good and my son liked it too. The sauce is very creamy, but has an almost pizza-like flavor. Someone at Low Carb Friends suggested that it might be good with some kind of vegetable in it, such as zucchini or broccoli, and I think that would be a great idea.
