Tips from an expert home chef

  • The recipe is designed save time by chopping the veggies while the turkey cooks – so be sure to follow the steps!
  • Whisk the sauce well to avoid clumping. Give it another quick whisk before adding it to the pan – the starch can settle while it sits.
  • Don’t overcook the veggies, they taste the best when they have a little crunch and aren’t too soft.
