Curry Turkey Stir-Fry

Just open the fridge and go to town making this throw-together curry. We prefer turkey, but if you like chicken, shrimp, even bean sprouts and carrots, by all means, add them. —Lauren Rush, Clark, New Jersey

    Very good. I think next time we might just leave out a little curry and cilantro, and kick up more of the asian flavors instead of indian. Still, VERY good.

    I substituted chicken breast for turkey, because it was on sale. This was a quick and easy meal. I had all the meat cooked and ingredients combined in the time it took to finish cooking the rice. Overall a good level of heat and curry flavor.

    Really easy to make and very yummy! We added bean sprouts and carrots and used shrimp instead of turkey. Would definitely make again!

    I cooked this meal for my husband any myself. I didn't have turkey on hand so I used chicken breast instead. It was very easy to make and we had almost everything on hand. It does take a little more time than suggested as you have to cook your meat and the brown rice first. Overall, this was a great dish and we really enjoyed it! :)
