You could always make a very small amount of sauce and toss the chicken just to coat. And the chicken could be pulled or sliced, or small chunks or even diced. What I like about this sauce is that it could be adjusted as needed, and it is a lot healthier than using canned soups, etc. And it definately can be prepared ahead of time.

Whatever you end up making, I wish you all the best. Have a Merry Christmas.........

No, this is our Christmas dinner. My son & family are coming from out of state on Dec. 26th for a short visit and does not want me cooking all day. So I want to make this ahead of time so I can spend the time with them. Thank you for your suggestion.

We are just going to have this in buns with fruit salad and chips. Maybe a cheese/cracker tray too. And butterscotch torte for dessert.

I am assuming you will be using leftover turkey from Christmas dinner? Here is a recipe you may find will work for you. It is one my sister uses when she makes Hawaiian Haystacks.

Although not exactly "pulled" it works well with any turkey or chicken......

Chicken Stock (either pre=packaged or homemade)
Water
OXO chicken bullion Powdered
Minced Garlic (1/4 to 1/2 tsp, to taste)
Parsley (handful to taste)
Basil (2 pinches or to taste)
Splenda (1/3 scoop or 2 tsp to taste)
Celery (3 ribs chopped) or Celery Seed if desired)
corn starch for thickening.

A. Boil chicken (or turkey) carcase and remove meat from bones.
OR
B. Cook chicken(turkey) pieces and cut into small bite size pieces. Pour stock into pot and add chicken pieces.

Add OXO powder and stir to blend.

Add remaining ingredients,adjusting amounts to taste.

Thicken with cornstarch and let simmer for about 20 minutes.

Because I must go low sodium, I do not use OXO, I found a no sodium base in powder that I use instead. For the same reason, I try to boil the carcass instead of using pre-packaged stock, but there are some stocks out there that are low sodium.

She has always used Splenda so I have never tried it with sugar.

I hope you found something that will work for you.
Happy Holidays.

I checked out the Campbell's site and didn't find anything for what I need. I could take one of the recipes and delete all the veggies, etc. I just need one that has turkey, maybe some celery and a sauce.

Do you think I could just shredd the turkey and add cr. of chicken or cr. of mushroom soup?

This sounds pretty good but I'm looking for something where the turkey is shredded and I am going to serve it in buns. Thanks so much for this idea of a recipe for the next time I make pork tenderloin however. Always looking for something new.

I make this in the crock pot with a pork tenderloin but you can do it with turkey I am sure.

1 pound pork tenderloin
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup canned cranberry sauce (I use whole berries)
1/2 cup sliced dried apricots
1 tbs cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsps grated orange zest

Season pork with 1/2 the salt and pepper - heat oil in non stick skillet add pork and brown on all sides.
Place pork in slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients (except zest) together and pour over pork to coat. Cook and cover on high 3 to 4 hours or low 6 to 8 hours. Transfer pork to cutting board and stir the zest into the fruit sauce.

I don't use that much salt. I have added in cooked sauteed onions and peeled, cored and sliced apples in the last 1/2 hour also.

This was from a Weight Watcher cook book.

"Failure is only postponed success...The habit of persistence is the habit of victory." -Herbert Kaufman

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do."

Thanks so much everyone. I'll try the campbell site too. My son and family are coming in from Indiana on the 26th for a short visit and he does not want me to spend the time cooking. So I thought shredded turkey on buns would be the easiest because I can make it ahead of time.

It's amazing what you can do with (low sodium, etc) cream of celery soup. Have you tried the Campbells website? They might have some great ideas. Which sounds like a great idea...excuse me... emoticon

I've used a turkey breast in the crockpot with pot roast seasoning packet before, also turkey breast with pork roast seasoning packet (that is not BBQ). Both of them were good. Probably roasted pork or chicken packetts would go better than the beef.

But you could do the same thing (and be healthier while at it) by using your own seasonings, water, and fat/oil/butter (which is what KELLYRS10 just said). That's what the packetts have in them.

I actually just put a turkey roast in the crockpot with a little water. Rubbed some olive oil then you could squeeze some fresh lemon juice and season with Mrs. Dash or your favorite seasonings. It turned out pretty good and my husband really enjoyed it that way too.

I am planning on making shredded turkey sandwiches for Christmas with cheese/cracker tray, veggies and maybe a fruit salad.

I am looking for a shredded turkey recipe that is not bbq. I didn't see any on SP that didn't have catsup or bbq sauce in them. Anyone have one they can share with me?
