It’s a Different Kind of Bird

Chicken can get boring sometimes. You feel over saturated on it because that’s all you make at home. It happens. It just means it’s time to switch things up!

Instead of Chicken, lets make Turkey! Don’t get a whole turkey, you don’t need that much. You can find turkey breasts in your local grocery store. Be sure you look at how much it weighs, since the time cooking turkey is determined by weight. Mine had to cook for two hours. But it came out so juicy and delicious! Pair it with a side of green beans, and you have a complete meal! I added chopped garlic to my green beans to add a little more flavor.
