This hearty, rich-tasting main dish is sure to be a hit with your family. It's a delicious way to use up Thanksgiving turkey, and you can substitute 5-1/2 cups leftover mashed potatoes for the 6 potatoes. —Mary Lou Timpson, Centennial Park, Arizona

"I want to try this one. For those of you who used leftover stuffing, how much did you use?"

"Made this for a work Thanksgiving party. I prepared it in a Crock-Pot and plugged it in when I got to work, since all of the ingredients were already cooked ahead of time. It was a big hit! I will definitely make it in the future. It might even fill in for a future Thanksgiving dinner, if we get in a pinch."

"Thank you for this recipe. My whole family loved it . It's now a family must and I shall pass this recipe onto my friends. Since I didn't have any cream of chicken on hand, I replaced it for cream of brocoli."

"I felt like Thanksgiving in August..lol. Had potatoes and turkey to use up, so I spied this recipe. So glad I did. I cheated and used stovetop dressing. Everything else I kept the same. Absolutely delicious. Will make again."

"This was a great filling Fall/Winter meal. I divided the recipe when trying it for the first time. We thought it was so good that next time if there are enough leftovers I will make the full recipe and freeze half."
