This has been my favourite post Thanksgiving and Christmas leftover turkey casserole since my Mom first made it in the 1970's. I usually use the broth from the boiled turkey bones. Or if time is short I sometimes use tinned chicken broth and pre chopped and cooked frozen chicken. The original recipe had crushed potato chips on top, but I never liked it that way so I just skip them altogether.

  1. Boil chicken, drain and save broth.
  2. Remove chicken from bones and chop up meat.

This was comfort food at its best. Prepared this for fall '07 PAC and this is a recipe I will definitely be preparing again. Thanks for posting.
