Simple Recipes for that Leftover Turkey!

Do you always have lots of leftover turkey after a big Thanksgiving meal? Do you wonder what to do with it so you are not eating turkey sandwiches for the next two weeks? I have a great recipe idea for you, and it is super easy to do!

You can make a gourmet meal out of that turkey, and do it in about 15 minutes! All you need to do is check out one of Campbell’s new Skillet Sauces and pick up one that you think would best suit your tastes.


I have two flavors in mind that I think would work really well with leftover turkey. The Creamy Chipotle flavor, with roasted corn and black beans sounds divine, but the Marsala with mushrooms and garlic sounds really amazing as well!

This time around I think I am going to go with the Creamy Chipotle and some rice; and perhaps for round two I will use up even more of that leftover turkey with the Marsala flavor.

Since the turkey is already cooked, this recipe should be a snap!

Simply dice your turkey into bite sized chunks.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium/high heat, add some vegetables and cook until browned or heated through. We did peas.

Toss in the turkey and stir in the skillet sauce.  Heat to a boil, then reduce heat and cover for five minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

So simple to do!

This dish would be best served over a bed of rice, or over some pasta.  You can prepare the pasta while the skillet sauce is heating, and keep the sauce on a very low simmer until the pasta is done.

If you choose to make rice like we did, I suggest making the rice ahead of time. Make the turkey with sauce last, as it does not take long to whip this up!

This turned out really well. The flavor was great, however, a little spicy for my taste. I suppose that the name “chipotle” would hint to that though, lol. If the other sauces are as flavorful as this one, I’m sure they will be excellent as well!


A great feature about these Campbell’s skillet sauces, is that they are low in calories! You will find that all of the sauces are 70 calories or less. What a great way to make an easy, low-calorie meal any day of the week!

The skillet sauces are available in six varieties, and you can find out more information about the Campbell’s Skillet Sauces by visiting their website or social media channels here:
