If you find yourself with a bunch of leftover turkey next week, do a jig around you kitchen. You’re sitting on gold mine of easy, weeknight dinner fare.
Bag the turkey in 3 cup quantities and freeze it (don’t forget to label it). You can use turkey in any dish that you would normally use cooked chicken. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Soups and casseroles are obvious choices and I’m going to share a few of my favorite soups with you today. If you’ve got turkey (or chicken) cooked and frozen, you are all set for these recipes.
Homemade Chicken and Dumplings isn’t exactly a soup, but I think it fits in well. If you were lucky, you’ll get to have dumplings with your Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe you’ll be double-lucky and get to have them after the holiday too.
Pumpkin Black Bean Chicken Chili in the Slow Cooker is a new favorite recipe for me. Everyone who tells me they’ve made it loves it too. (Thanks for the recipe, Bev!)
This Tomato Basil Chicken Soup is very fast to pull together. Pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich on a cold evening.
Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken Soup can be made with all kinds of variations to fit what you’ve got in your pantry. It will be easy and taste great every time.
