Making Turkey Divan w/o the canned soup?


Recommended Posts

If you have lots of leftover turkey and wanted to make Turkey Divan but sans the canned cream of chicken soup, what would you use to replace it? I haven't made it in years and I've since stopped using canned soup because of the MSG. Could I do something with chicken broth and cream???

1 c chicken stock

1 c milk

stir and heat until thickened. add

3/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp white pepper

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/4 c parmesian


-beat to soft peak

2 c heavy cream and fold into above sauce


pour over broccoli and turkey layers in shallow cassarole that have been sprinkled with 2 tblspn parmesian.
