    I substituted frozen cooked peas, natural carrots and margarine instead of butter. My whole family loved it and I had to double the recipe. Glad I did! We all loved it.

    But, where is the chicken?

    Why is it called “california” anything when there’s so much heavy sauce…is it the tuna? Despite the name I tried this and my family found it goopy and heavy and didn’t care for it at all.
