"This recipe is a good base. It is easily modified and still tasty. I used thighs instead of turkey, didn't have any cream of chicken, so I used two cream of mushroom, added more onion, used Parmesan instead of mozzarella.....you get the idea. The only caution I have is the undiluted soup: I definitely felt the need to add chicken stock/broth to the mix. Save yourself some time and dishes by getting a pan that can go from stovetop to oven. This recipe served 4-5. I would double it for 8 servings if it's your main dish."

"Very good simple recipe. I used left over roast chicken and made half the recipe using only one can of cream of chicken. My 1 and 2 year olds liked it too."

"We loved it. Used cheddar cheese, more tangy. I put garlic in anything that calls for onions and celery sautéed in butter! It was easy and very good for a winters night."

"What a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!

I've made this several times both with turkey and leftover cooked chicken and found it to be delicious. As I do with most Taste of Home recipes, I made some changes to up the flavor factor.
I make the follow changes:
I add several cloves of chopped garlic to the onion and celery. I either use two cans of health request cream of chicken or 1 can cream of chicken and 1 can cream of broccoli. I use brown rice and stir in 1/4 - 1/2 cup cheddar, monterey jack, or mozzarella cheese. I try to only use 1/2 the can of french-fried onions and add another 1/2 cup of cheese on top."

"Nice basic recipe you can substitute any vegetable or meat combination. I added chicken broth and milk for creaminess and pit cheeses into the casserole as well as on top and substituted crushed croutons for fried onions."

"Definitely tasty. Used fresh broccoli for it, which works fine. Has room to add more of the onion and celery, so don't be afraid to cut another slice and stalk."
