READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by ugogirl

Greetings! I'm a brand new member to Zaar. Without a doubt, this is the "best" recipe site on the net. I am in awe at the amount of wonderful things to cook and bake. I thought I would start out with one of my simple recipes. Here is an easy skillet meal to help use up all that leftover holiday turkey we all have. Of course, you can substitute chicken or pork also.

This was a great way to use leftover turkey. I had added my frozen chunks to the pan and it worked great. I didn't have broth so used powdered bouillon with water. I doubled the recipe, too. This was was a real comfort meal. Thanks ugogirl, for posting. Roxygirl
