Tasty Tuesday: Turkey Leftover Solution

I assume that all of you are like my family. We eat basically the same foods for Christmas that we do for Thanksgiving. If you are in that boat as well, then my next two Tasty Tuesday posts are for you.

This week we are going to be focusing on turkey leftovers. I didn't have any leftover turkey from Thanksgiving to make this recipe, so I used some leftover chicken that I had. It will work with either.

Here is what you need to make Creamy Chicken/Turkey Ole.

2-3 cups of shredded chicken or turkey
8 oz of wide egg noodles
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 can Ro-Tel, drained
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth

First cook the noodles according to the package directions. Add the onion into the boiling water as well.

Drain well. Combine the soup, chicken/turkey, noodles, onion, Ro-Tel, 1 cup cheese, sour cream, onion, salt, pepper, and broth in a large bowl and mix well.

Grease a 2-quart baking dish and spoon the chicken/turkey mixture into the dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Enjoy a delicious and easy way to use up some of those Thanksgiving and Christmas leftovers.

And if you're thinking, "But I thought she said her kids wouldn't eat casseroles?" You're right. They didn't eat this. But I told them sometimes I might have to make something they don't like for the blog. They wound up having leftover Thanksgiving desserts for supper after trying a bite of Creamy Chicken Ole and pronouncing it, "Gross!"

And I know that giving them dessert for supper is negative reinforcement of their unwillingness to eat casseroles. But sometimes as a mom, the child psychology just goes out the window. Plus I really needed that dessert GONE! Can you say temptation?

Enjoying our leftovers in the treehouse,
