Here’s an excellent way to use up leftover turkey. If you do not have cooked turkey on hand, sauté a couple of turkey cutlets, then chop fine before adding them to the barley mixture. Cooked ham or chicken can also be used in place of the turkey.
- 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
- 2 onions, coarsely chopped
- 1 large sweet red or green pepper, coarsely chopped
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped hot chili pepper
- 1 cup pearl barley, sorted and rinsed
- 1 3/4 cups chicken stock
- 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes
- 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper
- 2 cups shredded cooked turkey
- 1 cup corn kernels
How to make it About 1 hour, 25 minutes
The night before, you can shred the turkey and chop the onions, sweet pepper and chili pepper. Store in the refrigerator in sealed bags until needed. You can also make this dish a day ahead — the flavors will blend and intensify. Follow the recipe, then cover, refrigerate and reheat.
Healthy Cooking Tip
Remove the skin from cooked turkey to reduce the fat content. Trim away any visible fat. Gently pull the meat away from the bone; if tender, it should come off easily. Using your fingers, shred the meat by pulling the fibers apart.
