Leftover Turkey Recipe:
Another leftover turkey recipe, this one adds a little sweet and sour to the bird.
I love turkey, as most of us do, and turkey leftovers are wonderful.
It's nice to take a break from the regular casserole type turkey leftovers, as good as they are.
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup sliced celery
1 red or green pepper, sliced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 - 19 ounce can pineapple chunks
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 cup sweet mixed pickle liquid
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken
1 cup sweet mixed pickles, quartered
Sauté vegetables in butter until tender-crisp.
Drain pineapple reserving juice. Add water to make up 2 cups liquid. Stir into mixture of sugar and cornstarch until smooth.
Add mixture to vegetables with pickle liquid, ketchup and soy sauce. Cook stirring constantly until thickened, about 3 minutes.
Add pineapple, turkey, and pickles. Heat through and serve over cooked rice.
- Use fresh or leftover chicken and this becomes a terrific sweet and sour chicken recipe.
- If you wish you can coat the turkey or chicken pieces with egg then flour and fry them to create a batter as in the image.
