Turkey Breast Recipe
Turkey is so easy to prep and even easier to cook. And takes literally no time to gulp down lol, cause it’s so delicious! This turkey breast with peas comes together and cooks super quickly, making it perfect for those busy weeknights.
I love the turkey breast with peas combination because they’re both no fuss ingredients, blend quite nicely and go well with pretty much everything. Both turkey and peas don’t take a lot of time to cook and they can make a great, healthy dinner option. Toss in a couple of other veggies if you like to add even more of that healthy factor.
I love my peas a little crunchy so I don’t always go over board with cooking them for too long. If the turkey is done, I’m pretty much done with cooking my turkey stew recipe. That works particularly well for canned peas. I also love adding some carrots, mainly for added crunchiness and onions because I think their sweetness complements the other ingredients perfectly. This turkey stew with peas is a great meal for family dinners!
