Here is a great recipe to use up any leftover chicken or turkey. It is great served over egg noodles or rice, I have even topped this on a puff pastry shell, when I have had company over for dinner, and added some cooked mushrooms and peas to the creamed mixture, very easy to prepare and tastes so good, this will be a recipe that you will make time and again.

Just delicious. Reminded me of something my mom used to make: comforting, classic and yummy. I didn't use the Parmesan cheese in this, and I added a little Tabasco to the sauce along with the cream. Thanks for another winner, Kittencal!

This is a great way to remake leftover chicken or turkey! I used roasted chicken, replaced the pimentos with diced red bell pepper, and added a chopped hard boiled egg. The sauce was rich and creamy, with just a hint of cheese; just the way I like it. I served over a brown and wild rice blend, which was great for mopping up all of that wonderful sauce! It made more than I expected- after cutting in half I still had at least three very generous servings.
