Turkey with gravy makes divine comfort food that reminds me of old-time diners on the East Coast. Happily, my gravy is not from a can. —Chris Schwester, Divide, Colorado

"I tested this recipe when I received my June/July 2015 issue. I did adjust the recipe as follows: I used 1/4 cup butter, 1 small onion, chopped, 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/2 tsp. crushed Italian seasonings,

1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth, about 3 cups Cubed, cooked rotisserie-style chicken in place of the deli-style turkey. I omitted the bread and served this dish with prepared packaged mashed potatoes. Adding the Worcestershire sauce & LESS chicken broth worked well for me-that way, I found the sauce for this dish NOT watered down for me! (I've had to learn to just add enough liquid so the sauce won't scorch, yet NOT so much liquid that I get a watery sauce! I'm glad that I tried this recipe! I found it to be tasty and quick! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home!
