I think putting the chicken in a skillet first, maybe with a little butter and seasoning, would add a nice flavor/texture to the canned chicken. And you're only adding one more pot that water and noodles boiled in....

Thanks!

edited to add: I'm glad this was elaborated on.
good idea to make it one pot .

Do they make canned turkey? I don't think I've ever see it.

I sometimes make something like this with tuna and mushroom soup and frozen peas. Sometimes a can of mushrooms. I usually intend to make it into a casserole, but end up eating a bunch of it before it's been baked.

MMMMMMM ... maybe I'll make some for lunch.

I bought some canned turkey at Sam's Club the other day. I don't know if other stores have it or not.

OK, dumb question here - do you not thin out the cream of "whatever" soup with something? You just use it full-strength? Isn't it really salty and strong?

LadyCook - love the peas in it!!!!

I do mix some milk or half and half with it but only half a soup can. I don't want soup . You could buy the low sodium soups . Also it doesn't taste salty and strong to me because it is mixed with the other foods.

I don't think their "cream of" soups taste salty straight up either. I often use the mushroom with pork chop dishes and barely add any additional liquid, unless I am adding rice, too.
But then, I like salt...
