Notes

There are lots of versions of this dish, most call for bacon and dried beef. Those versions are of course delicious, but this is my lightened up version. Still full of flavor, but a lot LESS FAT by using ham. Use reduced fat Cream of Chicken to lessen fat even more.
This can be assembled and refrigerated, covered, up to 48 hours before baking.  Let dish sit out of refrigerator for 1 hour before baking.
