Turkey Dinner Skillet

Updated: Dec 4, 2019

Thanksgiving is a challenge for singles and small gatherings. Not everyone has enough mouths around their table to demolish an entire turkey, or even put a good dent in it. This recipe from Better Homes And Gardens is perfect for a small Thanksgiving dinner. All you need to do is cook up one turkey breast! Broccoli, onion, and celery are sautéed in butter, with sage for that familiar and cozy taste. Throw in some dried bread (we made baguette croutons) and mix them in with the broth. Toss it all together, and let it simmer - then top with dried cranberries before serving.

Alternative: We went the extra step of making a 1/4 cup of gravy using reduced chicken stock and mixing that in too... because we're gluttonous. For added good news, this dish reheats beautifully in the oven! Low Calorie Not only is this great for a small Thanksgiving celebration, but it's also low calorie! That is if you don't smother it in gravy the way we do.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
