Turkey Lentil Chilli

A Turkey thigh often has enough meat for two meals for us. So as usual we had left over cooked Turkey. What to do with it that’s a bit different? Turkey Lentil Chilli……


The meat from about ½ a cooked Turkey thigh, cut into rough cubes
400g dried Green Lentils
300ml Turkey stock from roasting the previous day
300ml water
1 tsp oil
3 small onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 can of choipped tomatoes
1 can of Kidney beans
1 can of Sweet Corn
2 tsp ground Chilli
4 Birds Eye Chillies
2 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper
Grated Cheese


(1) Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker or casserole dish with a lid.

We served ours in a giant (Gluten Free) Yorkshire pudding with grated cheese and Chives ot to for a bit of colour.
