Reviews for Creamy Turkey a la King
"I made it vegetarian. I used Vegetable broth(low sodium) instead of chicken broth and Tofu instead of turkey. I made a basic biscuit from scratch(just search basic biscuit) super easy. While the meal was cooking I made the biscuits. Everything organic and whole wheat flour. Who says healthy can't be easy and good? Seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder and it was a hit."
"My Mom loved it, I found it a little salty"
"Good use for leftover turkey, and good comfort food!"
"low cost and tastey"
