Turkey Pot Pie Fried Rice

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   Cook Time: 30 Minutes   Serving: 4-6



This recipe is inspired by a type of fried rice served in Hong Kong.  There are many restaurants, including mom-and-pop fast food joints, like to serve dishes with fried rice as the base.

Then, it will top with something with sauces.  One of the best examples is "Ying Yang" fried rice.  Two sauces on top of the fried rice.  One is the red sweet and sour sauce that you are very familiar with.  The other one is a white shrimp sauce.  It looks like Alfredo sauce.  But it is much lighter in texture and calories wise.

And I am telling you....when the rice absorbs the sauce, each bite is like in heaven.  Nothing better than use up your leftover with this twist, huh?  That was how this recipe created.

Heads up....you will have a big pot of fried rice and a skillet of turkey and vegetables in gravy cooking at the same time.  You will switch from one to the other back and forth.

No, you will not be overwhelmed.  And it is absolutely doable.  You will realize that the pot of rice will need less attention at the beginning while you need to be more focus on the skillet of turkey and vegetables.

Then, your focus will switch when the overnight cooked rice need more attention while the skillet of turkey is almost done and need very little work.

And I have 100% confidence in you that you will get this delicious family meal on the table in 30 minutes.

When I made this turkey pot pie fried rice, I had all the leftover which was so easy to have everything ready.  Please feel free to use some store-bought help, such as rotisserie chicken, gravy in the jar and so forth.  Yes, we do want to provide a healthy family meal.  But it is the matter of having everybody sitting on the same table to have quality time.
