    Made this today but as I don't like chicken I left out the broth. It really didn't need any more liquid. Was very tasty.

    I added some nutmeg and left off Parmesan cheese. Very yummy side. Also great with fresh minced garlic.

    I made this this evening and tossed it through some steamed Cauliflower and Broccoli florets, didn’t have cream cheese so I used sour cream instead , went well with our pork chop.
