Gluten Free Turkey Mirin

Turkey Marin | Small Town Living in Nevada

I loved Chicken Marsala. But since I was diagnosed gluten and chicken intolerant, I haven’t had Chicken Marsala in years. I came up with a clever idea that I was going to make my own with Turkey.

We usually buy whole turkeys and fill the deep freezer  with 3 or 4 at a time. Normally I roast up the whole turkey and make turkey salad sandwiches with the left over meat. However, this time I decided I was gonna change it up and basically cut the raw turkey up.

I removed the drumsticks with the thighs still attached. Then I removed the breast meat with the wings still attached and threw everything into large container and was thinking I could get a good 4 meals out of this.

I immediately took the carcass which still had some nice raw turkey still attached to the bones and tossed it into a stock pot and made Turkey Noodle Soup.
