Creamy Turkey and Rice

I think most of us make a little extra turkey every Thanksgiving as we are looking forward to those nice turkey sandwiches the next day but what do you do when you have more left over turkey then you know what to do with. You make a nice comforting creamy rice dish that is simple and economical to eat. You could also use chicken for this dish and it is a wonderful way to use up left over chicken too. This is a one dish meal.

Creamy Turkey and Rice

Cook 2 1/2 cups of rice either by stove top or rice cooker

1 12 oz can peas
1 10 3/4 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
1 1/2 to 2 cups of cooked turkey or chicken
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of curry powder
1/4 cup of chopped pimiento or red pepper

option: Shredded cheddar cheese

Remove the liquid from the peas. Pour the mushroom soup in to a large frying pan, and add the milk and mayonnaise. Begin cooking on medium heat gently stirring the milk in to the soup, add the turkey or chicken to the soup mix and add the salt and pepper and curry powder, stir everything together and add in the rice and stir through and top with the peas and pimento or red pepper. Stir gently so you don’t smash the peas. Heat through and serve immediately and optionally sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.

This is also a low budget recipe.

Note: This recipe is my own creation any resemblance to any other recipe is purely coincidental. You may be able to save time and money by using a rice cooker made by zojirushi it will help you and assist in the cooking of the rice. My mother often uses it and it tastes really good. Enjoy!


There is no official national ‘Stop The Cuts Coalition’ organisation but there are lots of anti-cuts campaigns going on in the UK. Brighton Stop The Cuts Coalition has set this website up as a portal to all of the stop the cuts campaigns going on, so please comment with any additional links below.

If you have a Stop The Cuts campaign in your city or around a particular issue, you can create your own site by emailing brightonstopthecuts [at] with a brief outline of your campaign, desired URL in the format, a link to any existing online presence you have and whether you need a website setting up for you or just a redirect to your existing site. We’ll set you up and give you the login and then it’s up to you to add your content. Please give us up to a week to set this up for you.
