Chef Kevin: don't waste Turkey Day leftovers

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Wondering what to do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers? Guam Community College Chef Kevin Dietrich has some creative and tasty ideas that you can use easily at home.

He explained that it's simple to make chicken ala king, but with that "other" bird. "Take your turkey, dice it up, grab some mixed vegetables, a little bit of salt and pepper, sauté everything up add some cream and reduce to half check your seasons salt pepper chicken ala king perfect right over some toast or some dressing," he explained.

He also shared his secret for a quick potato skin soup, saying, "So when you are peeling your potatoes, don't throw those skins away for mashed potatoes. Store them in water wash them up real good then on Friday you can make your potato skin soup recipes are available on the Internet and it's a fabulous soup."

While on the topic of spuds, Chef Dietrich said potato pancakes also make a great next-day breakfast treat. "Take your turkey, dice it up into your mashed potatoes," he demonstrated. "If your mashed potatoes are wet, then you are going to want to add some breadcrumbs; if it's a nice thick mashed potato then you don't need to add breadcrumbs just make your patty then put them in a frying pan a little bit of oil fry them up – beautiful!"

Another tip from Chef Kevin  - make sure to put your turkey in the fridge no more than four hours after it has been sitting out on the dining room table in order prevent illness caused by bacteria. Remember, he says, no one is thankful for food poisoning.
