Quick, Easy and Tasty Leftover Turkey and Noodles (Or Chicken)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by landlocked 2

I was faced with another "what do I do with all of this leftover turkey" dilemma, when I came up with this recipe. My kids gobbled it up and even went for seconds (which never happens)! The best part, this came together in 30 minutes from start to finish. Can't beat that!

Great idea for using leftover turkey/chicken. My family enjoyed it. The seasonings were a nice combination - a bit bolder than most poultry/noodle recipes which is great because I used low-sodium broth and omitted the salt (for health reasons) and it still had great flavor. I used a national brand of egg noodles that did not add much of their starch to the broth so it did not come out as creamy as it would had I used homestyle/dutch noodles as you indicated. Because of this I stirred in an additional can of cream of chicken soup. Family-pleasing and budget-friendly, this will be a keeper. Thanks landlocked#2.
