    Is it possible to replace mushroom soup with broccoli cheddar soup?

    You certainly could, if you're not a mushroom fan! If you didn't want to intensify the broccoli/cheddar flavors (since they're already in the dish, you could also do something a little more neutral like cream of chicken or celery.

    How about something crunchy on top, like bread crumbs or crumbled corn flakes?

    Anonymous and Elizabeth, I agree adding some crushed corn flakes, crackers, bread crumbs or even some dried stuffing mix would be a nice addition of flavor and texture to this dish.

    this was fantastic, don't be afraid of the curry, it was a great flavor! We substituted a light cream a chicken and it was good. we also added the bread crumbs like someone here mentioned. Next time I will probably leave out the mayo (to make it lighter in fat) and it will taste just as good. thanks! this recipe was great

    The family loved this recipe. I had to double it and add some cooked pasta noodles. If I did not add the pasta there would not have been enough to feed my family of 6. When I make it next,I am going to triple it. I also added extra curry.

    Think I'm going to do this tonight--was just wondering what to do with the leftover turkey from Christmas. (That's still good to use, right?)

    Hi Christine! Yes your leftover turkey from Christmas, if properly frozen, will keep for about 4 months. So you should plan on using the last of that turkey in the next couple of weeks.

    I didn't have leftover turkey, but I used ground turkey as a substitute and it was wonderful. I seasoned with just a bit of pepper and a touch of garlic powder. Since the turkey was so lean, I dropped just enough evoo in the pan to keep it from sticking but everything worked out great. My husband is incredibly finicky, but he loved this one! Thanks.

    Hi Anonymous! I am happy to hear that this recipe was a success for you even though you didn't have leftover turkey. Sounds like the ground turkey worked well but for future reference you could also use leftover shredded chicken.

    added cooked egg noodles, doubled the sauce, and finally cooked pre-packaged turkey breast from meat section of grocery (i think it was hormel brand). Very easy meal to make and even my picky husband liked it!

    I'm not a cheddar fan. How would it be with mozzarella? I'm trying it tomorrow.

    @Anonymous- Mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, Colby Jack or Swiss cheese would all work well in this dish.

    Made this tonight and it was great, my husband and two kids said it needed to be added to our rotation. I did add French's fried onions on top and it was a great addition that was noticed and given compliments.

    I really didn't like this recipe. I couldn't even finish my plate. It ended up being a waste of food. I think it was mostly the curry that threw me off, because I generally like the other ingredients.

    I really liked this. I did ground turkey , simply out of convenience, instead of sliced turkey. Next time I will serve this with Naan bread.

    I used frozen veggie medley (broccoli, cauliflower & carrots), added some orange zest, topped it with stuffing mix & paired w/ Iceberg & cucumber salad. My husband loved it!!

    would this work with raw chicken chunks? Would it change the cook time?

    Hi Anonymous! Yes you could certainly use chicken in this dish. However, you will want to cook the chicken before adding it to the casserole. You can do this by cutting the chicken into bite sized pieces and seasoning with salt and pepper. Heat 1/2-1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken pieces for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked through and no longer pink. You could also grill the whole chicken breasts for about 5 minutes per side (over medium-high heat) or until cooked through and no longer pink. Remove chicken from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before chopping into bite sized pieces.

    Back in the 70's, there was a restaurant at Lenox Square called 'The Magic Pan'. They made Chicken Divan Crepes, so I USED to make this ALL the time, with crepes. I learned how to cook it when I was about 11 or 12 years of age, as going to Lenox Square was a SUPER treat, as we lived just down the hill from South DeKalb Mall (if anyone here is from Georgia and knew the area back in the 70's). Granted, the crepes were difficult to perfect, but once the contents were inside the crepes, it was easy to disguise the small tears on the crepes. I would definitely keep the mayo in as it did give it that taste that was oh-so good and made people question what the 'secret ingredient' was. I would drizzle Cream of Chicken Soup over the top of the crepes. WOW! My mouth is salivating now, wishing "The Magic Pan" was still around!! I'm VERY tempted to make this for tomorrow, although I won't even attempt to make the crepes, as it's been about 25 years since I last made crepes. Having a crepe maker made it MUCH easier, but I learned how to make them by using two (2) frying pans. I'd use the larger one to keep the oil in and would use the bottom of a smaller pan to make the crepes with by dipping it into the larger pan, but it took a few mistakes to get the batter just right. But this is a GREAT dish!!! Thanks for sharing this, as you have not only reminded me of a meal I've not made since the early 90's ~ and it brought back memories of splurging once a month and getting dressed up to go to the richy rich part of Atlanta (in the 70's) and pretend as if we were amongst the more wealthy people of Atlanta back then. (I think my grandmother did this special, once a month trip to the French Restaurant, because she wanted to assure me that I'd always be taken care of, as my Daddy (her son) passed over when I was just 10 years of age. (And yes, my paternal grandparents ended up raising me). Now I have bittersweet memories floating through my mind; a 'warm fuzzy' feeling, for sure! I'm curious about crumbling up some leftover dressing on the top! Thanks bunches for the recipe and the memories!!! May you ALL have a WONDERFUL Christmas season and a very prosperous New Year!!! May God continue to bless you all!!!
