    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tin condensed cream of chicken soup + 1 tin water
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    • 220g sliced fresh mushrooms
    • 1 small carrot, diced
    • 1 cup grated cooked turkey breast
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1/3 cup dry sherry
    • 1/4 cup light thickened cream
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    • 2/3 cup frozen peas
    • 1 tablespoon butter

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Mix the chicken soup and water in a bowl.
    2. Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stir in mushrooms and carrot and cook and stir until mushrooms start to give up their liquid and carrot begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add grated turkey, onion powder, salt, pepper, bay leaf and sherry to the pan and cook, stirring, another 5 minutes to reduce pan juices and cook away the alcohol from the wine.
    3. Pour the soup over the turkey mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the cream, parsley and frozen peas. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes to reduce the sauce and heat the peas through. Remove bay leaf and stir in butter just before serving.

    We liked this recipes alot. It was a bit runny though. Next time I think I'll only use 1/2 can of water. Also, I didn't have peas so I substituted green beans and it was good. No sherry either so I used Pinot Grigio in its place. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed it and it was easy to make. Served over wide egg noodles.  -  02 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good recipe. I liked the flavor that the sherry adds. I didn't have the cream so used milk instead of water. It was a bit runny so I added more turkey (about 3 cups). Didn't have cream of chicken soup so used cream of mushroom and added 1 tsp of dry chicken stock. I also added a bit of Frank's hot sauce to spice it up a bit. I'm used to having turkey a la king served over wide noodles from when I was a kid - we didn't have any so served it over left over stuffing. Yum! Overall a good recipe to play with.  -  30 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a super easy weeknight supper, and a great way to use up leftover turkey. Since I did not have the exact ingredients called for I substituted a little. My kids don't like mushrooms, sadly, but I used chopped onion and a stalk of celery, diced. I omitted the onion powder. I also didn't have the sherry so I used white wine. I know traditionally a la King uses sherry, but with a dash of sugar I think it turned out great. I served this over hot biscuits instead of noodles, and it was a nice change. Thanks for the yummy recipe!  -  02 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
