Ingredients

  • 4 sprigs fresh tarragon or flat-leaf Italian parsley
  • 2 large onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 1/4 pounds turkey breast tenderloin, cut into 2- to 3-inch pieces
  • 1 14 1/2 - ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons fig-infused balsamic vinegar or balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large tart red apple, cored and cut into thin bite-size strips
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped pistachio nuts, toasted if desired
  • 6 -12 large Swiss chard leaves, center stems removed, or butterhead (Boston or bibb) lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 ounce)

Directions

  1. Finely snip enough of the tarragon to measure 1 teaspoon; set aside. In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine the remaining tarragon sprigs and onions. Add turkey and broth. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, remove turkey from broth. Strain broth, discarding solids. Reserve broth for another use. Coarsely shred or chop turkey.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the reserved snipped tarragon, vinegar, oil, honey, and pepper. Add turkey, apple, and pistachios; toss gently to coat.
  4. For wraps, divide turkey mixture among Swiss chard leaves; sprinkle with cheese. Roll up chard leaves. If necessary, secure with toothpicks.
