With Christmas approaching, we find ourselves looking forward to our next large family meal together where we will enjoy turkey. Turkey is delicious and nutritious and if you cook a large one, there are plenty of opportunities and ideas for how to use up your left overs.
The following recipe is something that I associate with Thanksgiving and Christmas time as my Mom always uses her turkey leftovers to make this yummy casserole!
How to Poach Turkey Breast
Place turkey breasts in a large sized pot so that they lie in one layer.
Cover turkey with water (covering approximately 1 inch above the meat).
Add a stock cube if desired for additional flavour.
Cover pot with a lid and bring water to a boil.
Leave lid partly on and turn heat down to a light simmer (only a few bubbles rising to the top) for 10 minutes.
Cover pot with lid and let sit with burner OFF for approximately 15 minutes or until turkey reads an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
