  • “This is a great way to use up turkey left-overs.I used chopped already roasted turkey, fresh mushrooms and some fresh brocolli.I didn’t have any water chestnuts, so I omitted them.I also added some Chinese Chow Mein Noodles (dried) at the end and let them steam for a couple of minutes.I will make this again……”

  • “I loved this dish.I don’t eat chicken but I do eat turkey and I am always looking for a new way to make it.I will be making this again”

  • “I really enjoyed the flavor of this easy recipe -I did a two for one – I made half the recipe exactly as laid out and I made the other half vegetarian. All I did instead of adding turkey I added a veggie chicken patty that I had cut in strips. Enjoyed by the vegetarian too! Thanks Mirj for another excellent recipe”
