1 1/2 c chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 t paprika
1/2 t thyme
1 1/2 c cooked turkey breast, chopped
1/2 c frozen green peas.
Heat olive oil in skillet over med. heat. Add onion, pepper, and garlic. Cook til onion is translucent. Add artichoke hearts and olives, cooking 2 min. Add broth, salt and pepper, thyme and paprika and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 min. Stir in turkey and peas and heat about 3 min. then serve.
The Response:
