Have you ever forgotten to take something out for dinner?! It’ s like pure panic sinks into your heart and you do a mental scrounging of our kitchen to see if there is something that you could possibly throw together that might appease the hungry hoard waiting for you at home. My recipe for my Chicken and Pea Tetrazzini with mushroom sauce is super easy to make and eat. One thing that makes this so easy is by buying a rotisserie chicken.
