  1. In a large skillet warm the olive oil and add in the onion. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.

Then add in the turkey and the chicken stock and cook until the chicken stock has cooked out and thickened about 5-7 minutes.

  3. In another bowl add the mayo, the cranberry sauce and the chives and toss together and reserve in the fridge until you need it.
  4. Assemble the sandwiches starting with the cheese, then add the hot meat over top, add the slaw and slather the cranberry mayo on the top of the bun.
