Soy sauce

1 bone-in wild turkey breast (about 1 1/2 lbs)

Honey mustard salad dressing

3 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup

2 or 3 chicken breasts (2 would be better, but my grocery store only packages them in groups of 1, 3, or 5 for some reason)

8 oz of sour cream

Hot pepper sauce, like Frank’s

Broccoflower if your supermarket carries it. If not, choose between broccoli or cauliflower, whichever you prefer

5 pears

Sliced almonds

Baking powder

Cocoa powder

Lunch: Soup and a pear

Dinner: Turkey (2 nights) or chicken wings (4 nights), rice, and broccoflower


Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Cook and shred ┬áchicken breast. Hopefully you end up with 3 cups. If you have more, freeze it for another time. If you end up with less – deal. Combine 6 cups of milk, 3 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup, the 3 cups of shredded chicken, 1 cup of sour cream, and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of hot pepper sauce in a slow cooker. I like spicy food so I put in 1/2 cup of hot sauce. If you are using Frank’s, which isn’t crazy spicy, it’s adds a nice flavorful heat, as opposed to a sear-off-your-taste-buds spice. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.


Grilled Wild Turkey Breast

Split the turkey breast in two and place in a large Ziplock. Add 1 cup of honey mustard salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Drain and discard marinade. Grill turkey, covered, over indirect medium heat for 45-55 minutes.


Glazed Chicken Wings

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If the chicken wings are whole, cut into three sections and discard the wing tip part. Place in a greased baking dish. Combine 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup of honey, and 1/2 cup of soy sauce and pour over wings. Bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes.


Save the remaining honey mustard dressing for salads and vegetable dipping!
