A creamy comfort food! A great way to use up left over chicken or turkey. YUMMMY! Serve with hot rolls and a bit of cranberry sauce on the side.

Yummy comfort food! I did run out of bread crumbs and subbed 1 cup of seasoned stuffing mix (pounded to crumbs with my rolling pin) for 1 cup of the bread crumbs. I also sauteed the onions in the butter prior to adding the crumbs to the pan. I just don't care for the texture of raw onions in most casseroles. I didn't need to add any salt, and did stir a bit of roasted garlic into the crumb mixture. I served this with steamed snow peas, jellied cranberry sauce (from the can) and hot biscuits (from the tube). It was an easy, filling and very tasty meal. Thanks for posting.
