Many recipes for chicken work just as well with holiday turkey leftovers. I used a chicken curry recipe for dinner and substituted turkey. The flavor is better if the pieces of turkey are stir fried just enough to brown them.

I also do this all of the time and actually prefer the flavor of turkey - much tastier. When turkeys are on sale, I will stock up on 8-10, keep in the freezer, and cook as needed. I often poach a whole turkey in my stockpot for the meat, and a great bonus is the stock for soup.

what about in recipes that call for chicken boneless breast? Does turkey work also?

I use ground turkey when I make chili and sloppy joes and things like stuffed shells etc.... I find it makes the dishes lighter and in most cases you can't even tell the difference.

Yes, I agree that turkey and chicken can be interchangeable. I do it myself. I make this one recipe using leftover turkey that is so good. I don't recall if I've posted before I should post it soon as people will want to know what to do with all that leftover turkey besides eating sandwiches for days!


Happy Thanksgiving to all!
