I cooked a wild turkey that I had in the freezer and this worked perfect to use up some of it as there are only 2 of us now. It was quite delicious and I am diabetic as well as have heart failure so this is a blessing to find and is easy and quick to make too. I have fresh zucchine in my garden no so added some of that and next time I will also add some of the yellow squash just to give it some additional color. I think celery would also be a good addition and not add fat or very many calories either. Quite a diversied recipe really, I think you could add most any veggies on hand. Thanks for posting.
