So earlier today I posted an easy recipe for cooking a whole chicken in the crock-pot.  Simple but it got rave reviews in my house! Now you are going to take the leftover breast meat from our Crock-Pot Easy Chicken with Mushrooms and Peas and turn it into cheesy chicken goodness! You can make this recipe with any chicken so if you have leftover chicken from another recipe, whip this up! While you are here make sure to stop by some of the other bloggers who link up with us in this week’s Whip It Up Wednesday.  Tell them the Crock-Pot Ladies sent ya!
