“Very nice! I had leftover chicken breasts, and this was a quick, tasty way to use them. I used fat-free cream cheese, rather than Neufchatel, and lined the bowl with plastic wrap before packing the mixture in–the fat-free cream cheese doesn’t set up as firmly, and this made it easier to unmold. I also used a food processor, instead of a blender. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as given–thanks for sharing it!”
