It’s that time of the year where LEFTOVERS reign supreme! The next time anyone asks if you want to take anything home, you’ll be prepared to say “YES”! This Leftover Turkey or Chicken Casserole recipe is more than just delicious and easy to make, it’s PACKED with protein.
Start with a small oven safe dish unless you’re doubling or tripling the recipe then start with something bigger. You can easily scale the recipe below.
In your dish add 9 ounces of turkey or chicken and 2 cups of fresh or thawed broccoli.
In a bowl, add in and mix together 1/2 can of cream of chicken, 1 container of plain fat free Greek yogurt (great substitute for sour cream), and 1 cup of shredded Swiss cheese.
Spread that over your broccoli layer and take out another bowl. In that bowl, mix together 1/2 package of stuffing and 1/2 cup of hot water.
Spread that over the top of your casserole and top it with anything else you want on it like bacon bits and/or hot sauce.
Bake your leftover turkey or chicken casserole on 350F/176C for 30-35 minutes. Add more time if you doubled or tripled the recipe!
There you go, a couple bucks, a few leftovers, and in 30 minutes you have an absolutely delicious meal you can eat the rest of the week that’s macro friendly.
