Turkey and Rice

Turkey and rice are up there with chicken noodle soup in regards to comfort foods. And a great way to use up leftover turkey. Since we spend Thanksgiving with my brother’s family at their house, we usually don’t have much in the way of leftovers. So, we do our own turkey the weekend before to have the leftovers. The beauty of a recipe like this is you can make it as a soup or a thicker meal by adding more rice.

  Turkey and Rice

Leftover roasted turkey

2 cups of rice

3 cups of chicken broth 

1 cup of carrots, chopped

Salt and Pepper to taste


Cook rice according to the package. I cook mine until its tender but there’s still liquid in the pan. Heat stove to medium heat. In a large pot, add rice and remaining liquid, turkey (how ever much you want) carrots, and chicken broth. Cook on medium heat until the carrots are tender. Salt and pepper to taste. 

You can reduce the amount of chicken broth to give it a thicker consistency or add an extra cup of either broth or water to make it more like soup.

Serve with crackers and you have a tasty way to use those leftovers!
