When my husband would ask me what I wanted him to make for my birthday dinner, I usually would ask for this dish! I absolutely love it! And, being a turkey-aholic, it gives me my turkey fix. Haha! I also make this every year with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And it is delicious made with chicken as well. :)
