    What To Do With Leftover Turkey Besides Turkey Salad Recipes

    We all look forward to Thanksgiving turkey but we may look forward to using Holly’s leftover turkey recipes. You can always freeze leftover Turkey in freezer bags – then, pull out for turkey sandwiches at a later time.  However, you can use leftover Thanksgiving turkey for any chicken recipe. We have turned Holly’s most popular Chicken Lasagna recipe into a Turkey Lasagna. One year on WBRZ morning show, the leftover turkey recipe we used was Chicken Tortilla Soup with turkey.

    Do you have kitchen scissors? If not, kitchen scissors are truly one of our favorite gadgets. We always use them to cut chicken into tenders or to trim chicken. In this recipe, we use them for the dried apricots and to easily snip the green onions.

    They are dishwasher safe and any gadget that helps cut kitchen time is high on our list. You will find so many uses for kitchen scissors from trimming chicken to cutting pizza.
