    SusieQusie's Note:

    Keep all the traditional goodness of chicken tetrazzini yet whittle out some of the fat and calories. A great kid-friendly, weeknight meal to use up leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken from the deli. If you're not watching fat intake, feel free to use full-fat ingredients.

      WOW! An absolute GREAT way to use up leftover chicken!! This is so very good!! I used leftover grilled chicken as I made wayyy too much for one meal. Although, like another reviewer, I found it a little too dry for my taste. Since I didn't have ALL the ingredients on hand, I substituted low-fat sour cream for the yogurt; broccolli instead of peas; and water instead of chicken broth. I also omitted the mushrooms and added a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes (drained them). It came out absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS. However, next time, I am not going to drain the diced tomatoes, for added flavor and moisture. I will most definately make this again and again!!

      A nice change to our routine meals. This is a great one dish recipe. I used a slightly different version for the white sauce(made it only using milk, a little margarine and flour) and added some ginger and chili garlic paste for spice. Also used a lot more veggies-almost all leftover veggies like a little yellow pepper, celery. I quite liked all the veggies in here. Also, I substituted the breadcrumbs for panko and the wheat noodles for the regular version. Thanks, it was a great hit with my husband. :)

      This recipe needs much more flavor. It was very bland and none of the family liked it much.
