If you prefer chicken, feel free to substitute it for the turkey. This is a healthy and easy slow cooker recipe. It's the best kind of comfort food because it's missing the guilt ;) Enjoy!

Very good -- hot and comfort food with almost no work. I left mine in for the whole day, my crockpot switches to warm when the 5 hours is up -- wonderful and so easy too! I didn't have any Italian seasoning so use 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp thyme. Next time I may add carrots and/or other veggies depending what we have on hand. Thanks for sharing!
This is a very good stew! I used the chicken breasts and followed the recipe exactly. I had to cook mine longer than 5 hours because the rice wasn't done yet. Delicious!!! Made for PAC Spring 2011.
What an easy tasty dish when the brain is frazzled and won't let you think of what to make for dinner LOL I had leftover turkey in the fridge and had alot going on and could not for the life of me think of what to do with the leftovers . WAM saw this recipe in Everyday is a Holiday tag and the lightbulb went off. Quick to put together especially since the turkey was done. I thought I had wild rice so had to sub a wild rice/ white rice mix. I used turkey broth I had in the freezer. I had to add more broth then called for but I think it was from using the white rice. At first as it was cooking I thought maybe there was to much garlic but it mellowed wonderfully as it cooked. Because the turkey was already cooked it took maybe 3 hours in the crockpot.
