I have some fun Thanksgiving funnies to share and at the end I’ll tell you what I did with our leftover turkey. Yes, we’ve had an early Thanksgiving get together this year so today I’ll be cooking another big meal for my boys, just without the turkey.
First of all, I hope your turkey doesn’t end up like this one!
Rather than Chicken and Dumplings, we had Turkey and Dumplings. So. . . . if you want something to do with all that leftover turkey, here it is!
Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey and Dumplings
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh carrots
3 cans reduced sodium chicken brothh
3-5 cups chopped cooked turkey (or chicken)
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp pepper
1 2/3 cups Reduced Fat Bisquick mix
2/3 cup skim milk
In a dutch oven coated with cooking spray, or olive oil, saute celery and carrots for 5 minutes. Stir in broth, chicken, poultry seasoning and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer.
In a bowl combing bisquick mix and milk. Drop by tablespoonfuls into simmering. Drop by tablespoonfuls into broth. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick into a dumpling and it comes out clean.

In the past I have made Chicken and Dumplings like this and they are really good. But since I didn’t have the Mary Hill Dumplings, this version saved my night!
I’m so thankful for this very Holiday where we focus on being with family! And, I’m thankful I’m not doing any black Friday shopping today. . .
Now, get to feasting and have a GREAT day! And remember, that pumpkin pie is a heck of a lot easier to burn off than the pecan pie!
