I had to spice this up a little but my family loved it! After reading all the reviews here is what I did: Being that it is no longer thanksgiving and the reason I stumbled upon this recipe is because I was looking for a recipe for boneless skinless turkey breast I cubed about a pound of turkey breast and seasoned it with salt white pepper (because I'm out of black at the moment) sage and rosemary. I cooked it in waterless cookware on top the stove when almost done I added a small onion about a tsp of minced garlic fresh broccoli and about a tbsp of butter then let it simmer until onion and broccoli softened just a little. I cooked my rice according to directions but added a little salt a little rosemary and a little butter. Then I mixed turkey and broccoli mixture with rice and probably a little more than a cup of shredded Colby jack in 9x13 baking dish. After that I added one can cream of chicken soup to a small mixing bowl along with half the can filled with chicken broth and the other half filled with heavy cream. I whisked the ingredients together and poured over turkey rice and broccoli mixture. I melted the butter and mixed with crumbled crackers as directions stated only I didn't have wheat crackers so I used the oyster crackers I had left and some butter crackers I had in the cabinet. I baked it on 350 for closer to 30 min. Bon appetite!

This was terrible. I made it as stated on recipe since I forgot to read reviews first. It was dry and tasteless. We added a can of cream of mushroom soup and some milk to it just so we could use it. It still was not good. WILL NOT MAKE AGAIN!

This was a great dish. I added a can of Cream of Chicken and it was very good. Best part is I was able to use up most of my left-over Thanksgiving turkey!

After reading the other reviews I tried this recipe and added the mushroom soup. I also added mushrooms. My husband and 13-year-old loved it--and they're not big rice fans. My 9-year-old wouldn't touch it (but she's picky!). I thought it was pretty good but still a tad on the dry side but I will make it again. It's a great way to use up leftover turkey!

This recipe starts with uncooked rice but the rice must be cooked ahead which was confusing. That made it take much longer than it would have if recipe had just said to use cooked rice. Also if you don't add lots of wet ingredients it is very dry. It probably should have had canned soup or something.I added soup chicken broth and it was still dry.

Wonderfully simple addition to the "turkey leftover recipe" repertoire! I used cooked noodles instead of rice and fresh broccoli instead of frozen which made for bright crunchy flavor and color. I actually just put it all in a skillet and it was ready in 5 minutes. Much fresher and better than Bertolli!;)

It's casserole not gourmet food and for casserole it's pretty yummy. I used minute rice instead which cut down on time added 2 cans cream of muchroom soup mixed with a little milk and a dash of worcestershire sauce and a handful of diced onions. I didnt put the broccoli in the casserole because my kids love broccoli and I wasnt sure if they would eat it all together. I also used corn flakes instead of crackers because that was what was in my cupboard. I dont usually change recipes this much but I used what I had and it turned out good.
