“This hearty entree offers a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. Whenever I make it, someone asks for the recipe.” Best of all, you can fix it ahead to simplify mealtime. —Sue Kennedy, Galloway, Ohio

"This recipe IS good, and certainly comfort food, but kind of bland (with all of the condensed soup & sour cream), so I had to add hot sauce to mine. Also didn't see the point in refrigerating overnite (guess so flavors could "marry?) so just baked it that same nite"
