Recipe by Johnsdeere

This recipe was originally a Taste of Home recipe that originally called for leftover turkey. I've since made additional changes, including steps for cooking the chicken. Unlike the common Tetrazzini recipes out there this doesn't involve creamed soups nor half and half. In the won't even miss it. This is a terrific comfort food that won't leave you feel guilty in the end.
