Creamy wild turkey chili

A special wild game treat you and your guests will gobble right up

As a sportsman, when you think of chili your mind naturally gravitates to the main ingredient being venison (if you had a productive fall)… or possibly beef as a reliable back up.

This recipe will have you questioning that old rationale. It is a super simple recipe that incorporates one half of a wild turkey breast and ingredients that you can commonly find in your pantry. It is a great way to incorporate wild turkey into your weeknight menu due to its simplicity. Pre-cooking the breast only speeds up the process for those busy days and brings your total prep and cooking time under 1 hour.

Doubling the recipe is extremely easy if you find yourself cooking for a larger crowd.
