Turkey Chop Suey
This is fast and easy any way you cook it, but I prefer the electric skillet. Put the rice in the microwave just before you start this, and everything will be ready at the same time. Rice does not cook faster in the microwave, but it is easier because it requires no tending. Use a large flat-bottomed casserole for the rice so it will not boil over. Consult you microwave book for directions.
Note: Have everything ready before you start cooking or some foods ay overcook if they have to wait for the next step.
