15 Minute Supper: Cheesy Turkey and Rice

Cheesy Turkey and Rice #15MinuteSuppers

I wish I could remember where I got the idea for making Turkey Broccoli and Rice. I know I started making it when my husband and I first got together- it might have been one of those times I just found random ingredients in the pantry and put it all together. It’s something that we make on a regular basis because it’s so easy and filling. Not to mention tasty!

We love to make this with either leftover Chicken or Turkey (I usually freeze them 1 Cup portions) or canned chicken or sometimes we will cook a chicken breast on “the George” while the rice is cooking. During this next month or so I’m sure we will be making it with leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving! (See Also: 12+ Dinner Ideas from Leftover Turkey)
