"I've made this a couple of times now. The only changes were (1) substituting chicken for the turkey as we had leftover rotisserie chicken, (2) toasting the almonds, and (3) only using part of the chow mein noodles and leaving them for when we had the leftovers so the noodles were crunchy."

"my hubby & I loved this, I plan to take this to Church potlucks. Leftovers are OK but should be used the first time as the noodles get soft. Still a wonderful dish with chicken or turkey."

"Since we're empty nesters, I make only half of this, and is very, very good. Have used chicken instead of turkey with good results, but plan to stick with turkey."
