I was always looking for something delicious to do with leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken. Generally the 2nd day it's not nearly so good to me so we end up giving a lot to the cats. I found a recipe similar to this and tweaked it a bunch. Most Chicken Tetrazzinis, I believe, have mushrooms, but my family doesn't like mushrooms. We think this is great without them.
