Left-over turkey in the freezer and nothing to do with it. Glad I stumbled on this recipe. Nice and easy to put together. I liked the crunch from the water chestnuts and the topping was a good idea. I sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top. Family thought it was good and were glad to have something different for dinner. Thanks, Beatrice.

Oh, how I hate to give bad reviews! I am giving two stars because we are not big on casseroles, so that may have affected our judgement a bit. I also loved the cornflake topping, that much was fabulous! But not a single person in my family liked this, including the company that we had over! I followed the recipe to a "T" with the exception of the broccoli, I used the normandy mix wich gave it a bit more flavor. This casserole had a really odd taste to it. Then again, maybe it was just us! ;)

This was very good! I added 1/2 cup of cheese and used only 1/2 cup of mayo. I didn't have any plain white rice so I used chicken rice-a-roni. The family loved it and there's plebty leftover for tomorrow!
