Okay, leftovers were a bit better than original dish. This was a bit bland for my tastes, I don't normally salt at the table and I had to with this dish. I made it as is for the first time, I'll "spice" it up but will continue to use it as a "base" . I also used leftover holiday turkey for this in lieu of the chicken. I froze half of the recipe to make in the future- I'll comment on how it freezes when I pull it out and make it.

You don't even need leftover turkey for this creamy make-ahead casserole because it starts with quick-cooking turkey cutlets that you season and cook in a skillet.
