|Tips||Although this recipe is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken, if you have none on hand, buy pre-cooked chicken strips or a rotisserie chicken to use instead.|
|For a bright flavour addition, add some finely grated lemon zest along with the Parmesan cheese.|
|For a more adult version, add a splash of white wine to the mushrooms before stirring in the milk mixture.|
