Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 3 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 pound turkey breast chops or cutlets
  • 1/2 cup small diced celery (about 1 stalk)
  • 1/2 cup dried Montmorency cherries, roughly chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup total)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 12 slices bread
  • Butter or mayo
  • Pea shoots or microgreens, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place chicken stock, water, wine, bay leaf, and peppercorns in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Gently slide in turkey. Reduce heat and simmer until turkey is cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Transfer turkey to a cutting board to cool down, or run underneath cold water to speed up the process.
  2. Once turkey is cool, place in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. You may need to do this in batches. You can also finely chop the turkey if you don’t have a food processor.
  3. Place turkey in a large bowl along with celery, cherries, green onions, mayo, vinegar, salt, and pepper and stir well to combine.
  4. Spread a thin layer of butter or mayo on one side of each slice of bread. Divide turkey mixture between 6 of the slices, and top each with another slice of bread, butter or mayo side down.
  5. Trim off crusts and cut each sandwich into 4 pieces and serve, garnishing with pea shoots or microgreens if desired.
