Dinner Tonight, Lunch Tomorrow: Turkey Recipes

We love these two simple turkey recipes that prove the bird is not just for Thanksgiving anymore. Try roast turkey breast for dinner and our turkey chili recipe for lunch.

Extra lean, super flavorful and full of filling protein, turkey has its day on Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean making it any other time is reason to cry "fowl" (ha!).

A simple roast turkey breast goes a long way and it's a great alternative to chicken. If you don't have time to roast it on the bone, many supermarkets sell it deboned or as tenderloins, which cook quickly and make weeknights feel a little special. We love this easy, simple roast turkey breast recipe.

Got leftovers? This warming chili recipe has all the bold, zesty flavors of beef chili with less fat and still feeds a hungry crowd. Temps are still dipping, so a warm pot of chili from your leftover turkey might be just the thing. Chili doesn't have to simmer for hours on the stove. This version is ready in about 30 minutes.
