We love chicken recipes, but it’s no surprise that we have it so often that dinner sometimes gets a little, well… boring. And while beef and fish are great ways to change things up, I’ve found that ground turkey offers us the most bang for our buck while still allowing us to make healthy meals. Here are 15 of our favorite ground turkey recipes you need to add to your menu rotation!
