Still facing leftover turkey? The answer. I just substitued cooked turkey for the raw chicken. Because I had cooked rice, I cut the milk to a cup and the broth to a 14 ounce (one can - normally I make my own but we had a little straining disorder . . . ) This was grrrrreat. Some unusual things but everything was perfect. Rather than the seasoning salt and cayenne, I substituted Tony Chachere's seasoning. Gotta be better than equal, for true. Yes, I am 1/8 Cajun and was raised about 60 percent culturally Cajun. It's my maternal line back to my great-grandmother, and they were all Cajun/Acadian/French before that except for the Melansons, who have a bit of Scotch thrown in. The people, not the whisky. I always use the liquids from - for example, the green beans, in the sauce. Some mushrooms - even canned - horrors! Well, that wouldn't be a bad addition. I used sharp cheddar cheese. I had some fresh parsley and green onions, which I added. I press my garlic and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before I add it to a dish. I even screwed up the flour - I forgot it and put it in quickly after all the other stuff was in there except the green beans. But I got the lumps out and no one was the wiser. This is truly fabulous.
forgot to rate this OMG recipe. My sons new to die for. I dont add the green beans,don't have fresh. The crumb topping YUMMM Great for breakfast,lunch dinner or straifgt from frig. Thanks for posting. Love Cooks Illustrated
This was really good, thanks for sharing. It was a cross between chicken soup & chicken pot pie. I added peas instead of green beans and next time may add corn as well. I used one can of cream of chicken soup and 2% milk instead of whole. I think this would be just as good without the cheese, maybe with just a little bit on the top with the breadcrumbs. Really great, my husband loved it. Definitely a filling meal.
Wonderful, whole family loves it. Thank you.
The best ever!! I used 2% milk and Ritz crackers for the topping. It was so delicious I had to keep my bf from licking his plate. Will definitely make again and again.
great casserole recipe! I loved that it didn't have any cream of... soups. it took me a bit longer - closer to 2 hours to finish everything, but it was worth it. I made a "Turkey Roast" earlier in the day and used 3/4 of it for the casserole. Then I swapped frozen broccoli for the green beans and the gravy packet included with the turkey roast for 1 cup of chicken broth. Otherwise followed everything as written and was very happy with the results. Next time I'll definitely make this in 2 8x8 casseroles as this is Very filling and would make a nice OAMC/freezer dish.
