Leftover Turkey or Chicken Casserole Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

LEFTOVERS! We all know this is the time of the year for them so next time a relative asks if you wanna take anything home rather than remembering the meal prep in your fridge just say…”ALL OF THEM” because with this recipe leftover chicken or turkey casserole have never tasted so good!

Start with a small oven safe dish unless you’re doubling or tripling the recipe then start with something bigger. In your dish add in 9 ounces of turkey or chicken and 2 cups of fresh or thawed broccoli.

My 1 & 2 Quart Casserole Dishes (<$20 for both): http://bit.ly/2gaV4Ig

Now in a bowl mix together 1/2 can of cream of chicken, 1 container of plain fat free Greek yogurt which is a great substitute for sour cream, and 1 cup of shredded swiss cheese. Spread that over your broccoli layer and take out another bowl that you’re gonna use to mix together 1/2 package of stuffing and 1/2 cup of hot water. Spread that over the top of your casserole, top it with anything else you want on it like bacon bits and/or hot sauce and bake it on 350F/176C for 30-35 minutes (longer if bigger).

That’s it! A couple bucks + a few leftovers = 30 minutes and you have an absolutely delicious meal you can eat the rest of the week that’s macro friendly. On the topic of leftovers, what are some of your favorite leftovers to take home from a party? Let me know in the comments below!!!
