I’ll be the first to admit that this dish looks bland.  Don’t let the picture fool you, though.  It is delicious!

I got this recipe from The Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes, but ironically it is not a slow cooker recipe.  I was doubtful of how it would taste when I pulled the meal from the freezer after my freezer cooking bout three weeks ago, but it was delicious!  This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Thai-Style Turkey

2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. cornstarch
non-stick cooking spray
1 small onion, diced
1 red sweet pepper, cut into thin strips
12 oz. cooked turkey, cut into bite size strips
1 clove garlic
2 cups hot cooked rice

-For sauce, in a small bowl combine 2/3 cup water, the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and cornstarch; set aside.

-Coat a large skillet or wok with nonstick cooking spray.  Cook and stir onion and sweet pepper over medium heat until tender.  Stir in the turkey and garlic.  Stir in sauce.  Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir for two minutes more.  Serve over rice.

To make this a OAMC dish, I just briefly stirred everything together with the sauce; I did not let it thicken and get bubbly.  (I did that when I took it from the freezer and reheated it to serve.)  Then I put it in a freezer bag, sealed and froze.  We made the rice on the day we served it.

**Most of us do not like spicy dishes, so I altered the recipe some.  If you like spice, feel free to add curry powder and crushed red pepper.  Enjoy!
