The smoked turkey in this recipe adds a great flavor, but you can use cooked chicken if you prefer.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the potatoes into a pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Cut the meat from the turkey legs, discarding the bones and tendons. Chop the turkey meat and set aside.

  • Heat the butter in a soup pot over medium heat; cook the onion in the butter until translucent, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and onion; stir constantly until the butter and flour form a paste. Allow the paste to fry for about 1 minute. Whisk in the chicken broth, potatoes, turkey meat, and corn; stir until the mixture comes to a low boil and thickens, about 5 minutes. With a potato masher, slightly mash the potatoes and vegetables until the potatoes look rounded off. Pour in the cream, bring soup back to a simmer, and allow to cook without boiling for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

I can't get enough of this - it's DELICIOUS!! I used baked turkey breast instead of legs & it's awesome. Although I think this enough to feed well over a dozen people so i gave some to granny college boys & friends & still had enough for the week for 2 of us. Read More

This is pretty good. I added carrots and fresh thyme. My potatoes were small so I used 6 small russet potatoes. I didn't use the whole quart of light cream - just enough to get the consistancy we like. Read More

Great recipe - I actually modified a bit to make it healthier. Went with turkey breast instead of legs used half the onion (just a personal preference) decreased butter to 3tbs used fat free half-n-half and only 1/2 a quart and added sage/parsley. It was delicious! Read More
