This is a traditional turkey dish, turkey in a white sauce served over rice.  We added slivered almonds and peas.  Consider adding carrot slices or pimentos for a touch of color.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • 3 cups turkey, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2/3 cup frozen green peas
  • steamed rice


  1. Melt the butter over low heat in a saucepan.  Add the flour and stir until the butter and flour make a smooth paste.
  2. Heat the broth, milk, and cream in a microwave safe bowl until hot.  Add a little of the liquid to pan and stir with a whisk until smooth.  Slowly pour the rest of the liquid into the pan, stirring with the whisk as you go.  Add salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the white sauce until it is bubbly and thickened, stirring often.  Add the turkey, green peas, and almonds.  Serve over the steamed rice.
