Chicken or Turkey Tetrazini

This is a great dish to make when you have left over chicken or turkey. 
It's full of flavour and makes a great weeknight family supper meal.
Serve with a green salad and crusty bread. 

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped fine
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tsp chicken bouillon powder
  • 1/4 cup cooking sherry
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2-3 cups cut up chicken or turkey
  • 1 375 gram package broad noodles
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  1. Over medium heat melt butter, add onions, mushrooms and peppers and saute until tender.
  2. Combine flour, salt, pepper and water in a jar. Shake well and stir into sauteed vegetables.
  3. Add bouillon and sherry and continue to stir over medium heat until mixture begins to slightly bubble and thicken. Add meat.
  4. Turn heat to low and stir in cream. Allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes. The sauce should now be a gravy consistency. If too thick add a little more cream or milk.
  5. Boil noodles as directed on package. 
  6. Place noodles in a well greased casserole dish. 
  7. Pour sauce over noodles and lightly stir.
  8. Top with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes. 


  1. When do you add the chicken/turkey?

  2. Sounds delish! And a healthy meal, too! Thanks! ♥

  3. I had an aversion to chicken tetrazini while I was pregnant. That was 10 years ago, and I still haven't eaten it! Maybe it's time to try it again. :-)

  4. Under step #3 is where you add the meat.....happy baking!

  5. This looks like a great meal Kathy!

  6. Never made this, but now you have me craving it. Something I could eat all week.

  7. Sounds so yummy. ..I will remember this for my leftover roast chicken we had for supper.

  8. We had this tonight for dinner, it was very good. We had never had turkey tetrazini before.

    Thank you

  9. mmhmm sounds super yummy! definitely have to give this one a try

  10. I made this last night for dinner. It was a smashing hit!! Thank you.


  11. Great recipe for leftover turkey. Will feed an army or weeks of meals for a single. Questions: was the cream meant to be whipping; is the parmasem to be the dry kind and do you bake the casserole with lid off or on?

  12. had several questions. The cream can be light cream or even half and half would work. The parmesan is the dry....and I bake it with the lid on and take it off the last 15 minutes. Have fun in your kitchen.
