  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 ½ cups finely diced cooked turkey

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 cups sliced broccoli

  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained


  1. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; stir turkey into cornstarch mixture and set aside for 15 minutes to marinate.

  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat and pour vegetable oil into the hot skillet, coating the bottom. Stir broccoli and carrots into the hot oil to combine; pour chicken broth into the vegetables and cover skillet. Cook until carrots start to become tender, about 2 minutes.
