Chicken Tetrazzini

I think we need another chicken recipe to finish out the week. If you have leftover chicken, roasted or stewed, this is a great recipe for it. It’s been a bit of a challenge posting the last couple days. Not to mention the server decided to post a 5 day old post on Saturday morning. I was a bit surprised. I’m out of town with a couple of my friends. Well OK we’re in Hawaii having a fabulous time. When I get back, I’ll post pictures and some Hawaiin recipes, like the potato macaroni salad we had with dinner last night. Sunday we did lots of shopping, and went to an awesome fruit market. Today we’ll be kayaking and snorkeling.
