Left Over Holiday Turkey

Posted on
What do rice, chicken/turkey, celery, raisins & Chinese noodles have in common?
I know – they seriously don’t sound like they go together, but my family LOVES Hawaiian Haystacks.

I see it as an economical (& family friendly) way to yet again use some of those holiday left overs.  My kids see it as one of their favorite dinners.  Winner winner, chicken dinner.  (Sorry I couldn’t resist there!)

1-2 c. chopped or shredded (bite size) cooked turkey or chicken
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. butter
2-3 c. milk
1-2 chicken bouillon cubes (for taste if desired)
2 c. rice (or 4 c. cooked rice)

In medium sized pan, heat 1 quart (4 cups) of water to boiling.  Add 1 t. salt, & 2 t. butter.  Bring to a boil.
Add 2 c. rice & again bring to a boil.  Allow to boil for 1 minute, then cover with a lid, & reduce the heat to low, & allow to simmer for 20 minutes without disturbing.

In the meantime, heat 1/4 c. butter in medium sauce pan, & once melted, mix in flour to form a roux.  Allow to cook for a minute, then slowly add milk, mixing quickly to prevent the flour from clumping.  With milk, thin to a gravy like consistency.  Dissolve salt & bullion into this mixture to taste.

Add cooked chicken or turkey (leftovers) & heat thoroughly.

Serve chicken/turkey gravy over cooked rice & top with the following as desired:
Chopped celery, raisins, chopped almonds, pineapple, dried coconut, peas, finely chopped green onions, Chinese Chow Mein noodles, peanuts, mandarin oranges, pomegranate seeds, tomatoes – pretty much anything you’d like.  Great for picky kids, because they get to choose their toppings!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
