I decided to make a one-pot, one-dish, all-microwave meal. A combination of savory and sweet, and ample portions for 2 or more people. I bring you: Thanksgiving in a pot.


  • Prep: ~30 mins.
  • Cook: ~30 mins.
  • Serves: 2

Filed Under


  • Turkey breast cutlets
  • 2 yams
  • 3 apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Step 1

Peel the yams.


Step 2

Chop the yams.


Step 3

Next, you'll want to core, peel and slice the apples.


Step 4

Sliced apples:


Step 5

Once you're done chopping up produce, you can cut up your raw turkey. I didn't photograph this step, because I didn't have a sous chef on hand, and I didn't want to stop in the midst of slicing raw poultry to take pictures. The turkey came in three sliced segments; I cut them up into 1-2" chunks.


Step 6

Now it's time to get microwaving. I started the turkey off by itself for a few minutes so that it would get some color before stewing in the rest of the casserole concoction. Once that was done, I added it to the casserole dish with the yams and apples. Cook for about 5 minutes on high. Once the yams start softening up, you'll want to add your brown sugar and butter:


Step 7

Microwave for 5 more minutes, then remove the dish and stir in the cinnamon and raisins:


Step 8

Return the dish to the microwave and continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes, or everything softens up and the juices start to mingle nicely.


Step 9

And finally, remove the dish from the microwave and plate up a nice hearty portion for yourself. Salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy! It's like Thanksgiving dinner, but without the drunk relatives and hours of cleanup.


Step 10
