This was a different way of using leftover thanksgiving turkey...and we really enjoyed it! I added some pepper and 2 caps of low-sodium soy sauce...I used asparagus that I needed to use and subed cashews for salted nuts....Everyone inhaled it! Thanks for a great change of leftover turkey! will make again...please note...this did not do well the next would plan on finishing it the first night...the chow mein noodles got really soggy...

Sorry, I forgot to post this earlier. I used up the last of Our Thanksgiving turkey with this casserole. It was very good, especially with the crunch of the nuts. The oranges gave it a little different flavor. DH and I liked it better than the kids, but I think they may have just been sick of turkey at this point. LOL Thanks Roberta for posting.
