Just the right recipe for using up some frozen turkey breast & thighs that were left over from one of the celebrations we had in mid-December! Very easy to put together, & it made for a very nice dinner! Served it with some cheese tortellini & homemade spaghetti sauce! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This is a great way to use leftover turkey, turning it into a completely different meal! I served it with a side of spaghetti and a salad. (I did leave out the mushrooms, thank goodness they are optional LOL)Thanks for posting another keeper Burnice!
