Gluten Free Turkey and Vegetable Casserole

Gluten Free Chicken and Vegetable Casserole

I am always trying out chicken recipes since I can always substitute with turkey because of our allergy to chicken. And the easier the recipe the better as long as it is tasty! I came across a recipe not too long ago that sounded great and I wanted to try it out… however I’m the type that can never stick to the original recipe without changing it up or adding to it. I just find it is way too hard unfortunately to keep to the original.

Nevertheless, my version came out really tasty and the turkey came out very tender and I savored every bite and even went back for seconds!
