A Heart smart way to enjoy this dish that is traditionally quite high in fat and calories. I have made a few substitutions to lower both. It still tastes very rich and delicious. But beware all this yummy goodness might have you going for seconds!
4 cups brown or long grain wild rice, cooked
4 cups cooked, skinless, turkey breast , cubed in bite-sizes pieces
4 cups broccoli, steamed & well drained
2 cups low fat sharp white or cheddar cheese, grated
1 can low fat cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup plain yogurt – to cook with yogurt, bring it to room temperature before you add it to the dish, otherwise it might curdle and separate and add it to the dish spoon by spoon.
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 T curry powder
2 full cranks of black pepper
Method of Preparation
Spray a 9x 13 oven proof casserole with cooking spray. Pre-heat oven to 350F/170C
Layer in this order: rice, then Turkey and broccoli on top
Pour sauce over and top with grated cheese.
Bake at 350/170C for 30 -35 minutes.
Too lower fat and calories even more, replace grated cheese topping with 2 cups of soda crackers crushed finely and mix with 1 cup parmesan cheese and 2 T. of basil flakes.
