Thanksgiving Poultry Recipes (Most Popular)
I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!
Uses leftover turkey
Simple, perfect roast turkey just like grandma used to make. The flavors of the turkey really stand out. Stuff with your favorite dressing
Use your leftovers for a great tasting and filling turkey recipe!
I had to estimate this recipe, because Grandma doesn't measure any of this, she just piles it in the pan and bakes it. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!!
In this recipe you make your own stock from boiling the bones, some meat and skin. I have added "canola oil" to my nutritional calculator to encompass the natural fats that will boil out while making the soup.
If you're like our family, you love Thanksgiving but only get to enjoy once a year. Now you can have a delicous meal that is so simple the entire family can help!
Love the juiciness that the butter over breast technique gives but dont like the added calories and fat? Try this recipe.
This is not only a great way to use up leftover turkey, but is very low calorie and, if you use no-salt corn, low in sodium too. Use whatever vegetables you like. Our family tops each serving with a tsp of Parmesan cheese.
This is a yummy soup I threw together after Thanksgiving. It's great way to use up the extra turkey! Peas and corn would be a great addition too. I hope you enjoy!
A special holiday dinner for two
An easy homemade turkey broth perfect for soups and stews.
I like to use a large-size slow cooker for this but a large stock pot or soup kettle can be used instead. Just be sure to watch the water level if using anything other than a slow cooker to be sure that bones remain covered with liquid.
The stock is flavored by whatever stuffing or aromatics have been placed inside the turkey during roasting. If I'm in a hurry and don't want to deal with stuffing, I like to use some aromatics loosely placed inside of a raw turkey that has been rinsed out and patted dry with a clean towel. Coat the inside with Kosher salt, coarsely ground black pepper and ground cinnamon (or use a couple cinnamon sticks); then loosely place some quartered onions, chunks of sweet raw carrots, celery cut into 4 inch pieces, leek, and a red apple or two that has been quartered and cored into both the front breast cavity and the main body cavity of the turkey. Roast however you prefer. I like to preheat my oven to 500 degrees F. and put the turkey in a roasting pan on the lowest rack. Make a tent out of aluminum foil to put over the breast portion only. Roast for 30 minutes at 500 degrees. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue roasting, basting every 30 minutes until meat thermometer registers 161 degrees F. Turn off oven and let turkey sit until temperature reaches 180 degrees F. (Turkey will continue to cook even with oven turned off.) This makes a beautifully browned,moist and tender turkey with lovely pan drippings to use for this stock recipe.
The rich and spicy flavors of Moroccan cuisine are the perfect way to warm up on those chilly winter nights! High in protein and flavor, these tasty meatballs make a great appetizer or entrée. You can even turn them into shish kabobs with small bamboo skewers. Don’t feel discouraged by the lengthy ingredients list – because Moroccan cooking is based on fragrant spices, many of the ingredients are repeated in both the sauce and the meatballs.
