Leftover turkey and Asian ingredients combine to create this uniquely delicious dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):

- 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
- 3 cups cooked, chopped turkey meat
- salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the broiler.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together hoisin sauce, barbeque sauce, ginger and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Mix in turkey, salt, pepper and green onions, gently tossing until all ingredients are well blended. Cook approximately 10 minutes.

Hoisin sauce, also called Peking sauce, is a thick, reddish-brown sauce that is sweet and spicy, and widely used in Chinese cooking. It's a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers and various spices. It can be found in Asian markets and many large supermarkets. Look in the Asian or ethnic section.
