Maybe there are some of you that celebrated Thanksgiving with a small group.  Maybe you don’t know exactly what to do with leftovers of turkey or chicken.  This recipe might be a helpful solution.  By the way, it is okay to use a hen, chicken, Cornish game hens, or turkey for Thanksgiving!  Some even cook gumbo, ham, shrimp, crab, ribs, brisket, or roast beef for Turkey Day.

(Also, I have made this recipe in a crock pot with frozen cooked chicken or turkey strips, as well as  on the stove.)

Equipment needed:

6 quart crock pot

(OR large stove cooking pot w/lid)

Vegetable spray for crock pot

Bowl for mixing some ingredients

Large cooking spoon

Large pot to cook noodles at end

Colander to drain noodles

Measuring spoons

Measuring cup

Ingredients:

Cooked 2 lbs turkey or chick. strips

1 pkg frozen or fresh chop. onions

2-10.75 oz cans cream mushroom soups

(Do not dilute soups.)

2 tsp low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp minced garlic

1 32 oz box unsalted chicken broth

8 oz light sour cream

1 small pkg fresh, sliced mushrooms

(Mushrooms are optional.)

Salt and pepper to preferences.

1 pkg 12 oz wide noodles, cooked

Directions:

As I previously stated, I most often use a crock pot for this recipe.  Spray the crock pot with vegetable spray such as PAM.  Place the onions and COOKED turkey or chicken strips into crock pot OR stove pot.  Mix soups, soy sauce, mushrooms (if using), minced garlic, and all of broth in large bowl.  Pour mixture over poultry and onions.  Cover and cook in crock pot 6-8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.  Obviously, cooking time for a stove pot would be much less.  Before meal is complete, boil 6 cups or more of salted water in large pot on stove.  Add uncooked pkg noodles.  Stir pot without lid often.  As noodles are cooking, add sour cream, salt, and pepper to crock pot OR stove pot, stirring well, as meal is almost complete.  Serve stroganoff over noodles OR add noodles to stroganoff and stir well in crock pot or stove pot.  Now, it is time to eat!
