I am so glad to have found this recipe!!! I have tired of turkey/chicken leftover recipes which use creams soups (which I refuse to use) or cream sauce. This was VERY tasty...a wonderful combination of flavours. I doubled the sauce ingredients, except the honey as I am tyring to cut back on sugars..and it was great. A very simple yet quick recipe... preparation and cooking time was only about 20 minutes . I have already been asked to make it again.

Absolutely FANTASTIC! My house is getting very tired of the creamy turkey divan/casseroles made from the leftovers, as well as watching our waistlines. This dish is flavourful and a great alternative for leftover turkey or chicken. I made sure to double the sauce recipe.

Outstanding recipe, we loved it! I didn't make any changes in your recipe. I used medium-hot New Mexico caribe (red pepper flakes) and it was perfect for us. I also used smoked turkey that was in my freezer, both dark and white meat. I will definately be using this recipe again. Thanks for posting it.
