Turkey Time! Part 3


Here's the last recipe I found this year to use up my turkey leftovers. It was really great! Plus, since my kids liked it, it's a winner in my book.

Turkey a la King with Rice


2 tablespoons butter
1 3/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 celery rib, chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup fat-free milk
2 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups hot cooked rice


In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, celery, onion, and pepper; cook and stir until tender.

In a small bowl, mix flour and broth until smooth; stir into vegetable mixture. Stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add turkey, peas, and salt; heat through. Serve with rice.

Yield: 4 servings.

Notes: I loved this. I loved that it was so different than Thanksgiving dinner. I loved the freshness that the peas and mushrooms brought to it. It was delicious served over rice. This recipe is a keeper.


  1. I can't believe your kids will eat peas and mushrooms! Good for you. Looks great!

  2. Well, to be fair, I gave them mushroom free (or at least, they didn't get big mushroom pieces) servings. They love peas though.
