Here's a wonderful family favorite that will surely become one of yours. Tender chicken in a spicy, creamy cheese sauce, blended with pasta , will have you going back for more. Also, fabulous with crawfish or shrimp. Serve with a big tossed salad and hot French bread, for a delectable week night meal. Cest bon, cher!
