Turkey Rice Amandine

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

I've been making this recipe for a long time and our family really enjoys it. The recipe calls for turkey, but you can substitue cooked chicken (which I do quite often). This is a nice casserole on a cold winter night.

I'm not concerned about gluten-free so made this recipe with more standard ingredients, but, after making & consuming this dish, I did pass the recipe on to my daughter who has gluten concerns! I made this with chopped chicken breast & steamed fresh broccoli! For us the thing that made it really special was the inclusion of the toasted almonds ~ Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag game]
