Recipe Tips

- Two (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, poached and cubed will yield 2 cups of cooked chicken. To poach chicken, cover chicken breasts with water in 10-inch skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 15-18 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F. and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

- To make ahead, assemble recipe as directed except for final layer of cheese. Cover tightly with aluminum foil; freeze. To bake, thaw overnight in refrigerator. Bake, covered, 40 minutes. Uncover; layer with remaining provolone cheese. Continue baking as directed.
