Ingredients for Easy Turkey Skillet Dinner

Ingredients for Turkey with veggies

  • 500 g turkey fillet;
  • 1 eggplant;
  • 1-2 red bell peppers;
  • 1 onion;
  • 1 garlic clove;
  • 30 ml oil for frying;
  • salt, spices to your taste;

How to cook turkey breast with vegetables:

  • Rinse turkey fillet under cold running water and pat it with paper towels until dry. Cut into medium sized cubes (do not make the cubes too small, as they can turn out too dry). Season meat cubes with salt and black pepper, let them sit for 10 minutes to incorporate all the flavors before cooking.

Step_1 How to cook turkey with vegetables

  • Peel all the dry skin from onion. Wash it together with bell peppers. Chop onion into fine pieces. Cut bell peppers in half, get rid from all the seeds and then cut the parts into thin slices.

Step_2 How to cook turkey with vegetables

  • Cut cleaned eggplant into pieces. I chose to make slices thin for vegetables to cook through evenly. I prefer not to peel eggplant, in such a way it won’t lose its form while cooking.

Step_3 How to cook turkey with vegetables

  • Heat oil in a large skillet on the medium heat. Place turkey breast cubes and cook them for 5 minutes (do not forget to turn pieces, as the sides need to cook evenly). Add all the vegetables and extra seasoning (choose the type of herbs and spices to your taste; mine will be thyme or oregano). Continue cooking on the medium heat for additional 5 minutes.

Step_4 How to cook turkey with vegetables

  • In 5 minutes, lower the heat to low, cover skillet with a lid and stew vegetables with meat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. In the end, press one garlic clove into the skillet and cook the dish for an additional minute. Take the skillet from the heat.

If there is not enough juices from vegetables for stewing turkey breast, add 2-3 tablespoon of boiled water (or if you have any spare broth left). Cook mixture until the necessary consistency.

Step_5 How to cook turkey with vegetables

  • Serve turkey stew sprinkled over with chopped fresh herbs. Enjoy your meal!

Healthy Turkey Recipes

I prefer to cook turkey breast this way instead of simply frying it on the pan as the meat turns out very juicy. Every time I cook this turkey stew, I add whatever vegetables I have in my fridge or in my garden. Do not forget to add herbs and spices as the stew turns out more mouthwatering.
