    Canned chicken is disgusting. I can’t imagine it with all the other ingredients encased in lemon jello. There’s probably a good reason this recipe doesn’t appear to have been tried/tested by the MCM crew – yet!

    Myrtle O’Dell’s two sons must have been starving to eat this! It sounds revolting.
