30 Recipes for Leftover Turkey (or Rotisserie Chicken)

I hope you’re lucky enough to have a lot of leftover turkey meat after Thanksgiving dinner.  Having cooked turkey (or chicken) in the freezer is one of my biggest time-savers.  There’s no end to what you can do with it!

In fact, if you’re not cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving, you still might want to take advantage of the sale prices and buy one to cook just to have the meat in the freezer.  You won’t regret it!  A quick thaw in the microwave and the turkey is ready to use in a recipe.  You can substitute turkey for chicken in most any recipe.  I have thirty possibilities that my family enjoys for you right here in this post!
