    Sounds good. I may try this recipe with leftover Thanksgiving turkey but I will use fresh sauteed mushrooms versus canned and will leave out the sugar. I can't see why it would be needed in this dish. Will probably serve with homemade buttermilk biscuits and a salad.

    I changed nothing in this recipe and it was excellent. Once a cook adds /deletes ingredients, it is no longer the original recipe and therefore has no place in the rating system. :)

    As others have mentioned I add peas and hardboiled eggs. I serve it over white rice and get raves.

    This is wonderful! I added 2 hard boil eggs, handful of frozen peas and 1 - 4 oz jar of diced pimentos. I made it with chicken; but would also be delicious, I think, made with high quality tuna.

    I've been using this recipe since one of my sisters-in-law shared it with me in 1984. The name of the recipe was "Anything You Like ala King". You can substitute seafood, hard-boiled eggs,
