Chicken or Fish Au Gratin

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law and it is really good and really easy to make. It's nice because you can make it with either chicken or fish depending on whichever you prefer or are in the mood for. When I make it with fish I like to make it with halibut. However, sometimes halibut can be kind of pricey (it was $18 a pound the other day) so another good alternative is tilapia. You can get frozen tilapia from Costco- I know it's not as good as fresh tilapia but since I don't live near the ocean this is a pretty good alternative. I also like to put a pretty good layer of bread crumbs on my chicken or fish so that it has a nice crunch, so yummy!
