    Does this really need to cook in the slow cooker for 7-8 hours if it's already cooked?  I'm confused.

      It's not actually cooked completely. As with most slow cooker recipes, toss in the ingredients, cover, turn on and come home to a hot meal. If you choose to cook on the stove, that's fine but you'll need to cook it for a few hours. Thanks!

    Does this have to be cooked in a slow cooker? I would like make this tonight but don't have time for it to cook that long. If so, how would I adjust the cooking time? Lol, sorry…really inexperienced "cook" here!!

      Great question. Absolutely, you can definitely make it on the stovetop, Stacey.

      Stacey, No, it doesn't. Food automatically cooks faster on the stove so here you go. Cook the turkey onion and mushrooms as the recipes states, then add everything to a large pot/saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for about 1 hour, add yogurt and cornstarch mix, stir, cover and cook another 30 minutes. Enjoy! Please lets us know how it turns out for you. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This was great!  I didn't realize it was a slow cooker until 5:30pm, so I did it all in a skillet, and it was great!

    Super yummy, but it definitely didn't need 7-8 hours in the crockpot.  3-4 on low would be PLENTY.  Even the kids liked it!

    For the ground lean turkey – are you using turkey breast or just ground turkey? I have a hard time finding the ground turkey breast, but there is lots of ground turkey. I thought the nutritional content of ground turkey was the same as for lean ground beef.

      Pamela, Either one will work fine. I use ground breast just because it has less fat, but also use regular ground.

    Is this made with turkey breast?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  July 14, 2012

      Kim, Yes…lean ground turkey breast. If you like a little more fat feel free to use a mixture of dark and white meat.

    I made this yesterday using ground turkey breast. I'm not a big fan of store bought ground meats (because of the skin, connective tissue, etc. they contain) and typically grind my own, but the only turkey breast available unground was in large quantities and expensive. The ground turkey breast is pricier than the lean ground turkey, but it is MUCH healthier… lower in fat and doesn't have a bunch of mystery parts. Because it is lean it can be dry, but since this simmers in the slow cooker after browning, it keeps it moist.

    This recipe was definitely tasty. Even the kids liked it (aside from picking out the mushrooms which neither one likes LOL). I used twice as many mushrooms as it called for because I love them. I think if I make it again I'll add some sliced squash and carrots to it and reduce the chicken broth slightly to make up for the extra moisture the veggies will add while cooking.
    I ended up only cooking it for about 7 hours total. At 6 hours I added the cornstarch/greek yogurt mixture (I wanted it to cook more than 30 minutes because I like thicker sauces), and at 6 hrs 30 minutes I started the water for the whole wheat pasta I served it over.

    The recipe just says lean ground turkey, which is not turkey breast… but I made it with ground turkey breast and it came out great.

    I may be doing something wrong. It tastes great, but I only got 3 servings (1 cup each). Is am doing Weight Watchers so I am trying to make sure I have the serving sizes right. Could I be doing something wrong?

      Hmmmmm…there's a lb of ground turkey. Should be getting 4 servings at least. Maybe up the noodles slightly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did not realize it was a slow cooker recipe until later in the afternoon also so I made it on the stove. Was easy and taste great.

    I made this tonight and thought the recipe as-is is quite bland. After serving it for dinner, I looked up a couple turkey strog recipes and noticed several call for nutmeg, thyme and garlic. I doubled my initial recipe so added 1-2 tsp thyme,1/4 tsp nutmeg, a few dashes of salt and garlic salt (because it was too late to add garlic). I think the recipe with spices hits the spot but unfortunately I didn't love the original

    does the calorie count include the noodles or rice? and if so how much?

    This looked and smelled great until I added the yogurt and cornstarch mixture. It all curdled with tiny white specks. My yogurt was fresh with a June 2013 date on it…anyone else have this issue? ๐Ÿ™ Also added Megan's suggestions – yum.

      Karen, I remade the recipe and tweaked just a bit. I also added skillet/stovetop directions. Try using low-fat Greek Yogurt instead of fat-free…this should prevent any curdling.

    Yum, yum, yum!! I added more seasonings, garlic and a little extra balsamic but next time I would add more mushrooms and cut the yogurt and tomato paste down. Mine came out very rich and thick and not brothy like the picture shows. I even added some pasta water to thin it a bit.

    Definitely making this again though and helps me in making similar items that I have avoided as I don't like to use "Cream of" whatever condensed soups.

    Are you taking into consideration the noodles or rice for the 17g carbs?

      Alice, The noodles/rice are not included in this nutrition data.
