My only change would be More Layers. My old world Italian Mother-in-Law couldn't believe how good and light this recipe was - she wants me to make it again.

I made this last night and my husband & I loved it. Instead of cooking the chicken I used canned chicken to quicken the setup time and it was great.

This dish was great. My family loved it for Sunday dinner. A keeper!

Easy and tastes even better than expected. Add more salsa and some red pepper for a more Southwestern flair.
