I have Turkey Thighs

I picked up some Turkey Thighs at the grocery store for cheap. Now what? I was thinking maybe an Asian Marinade utilizing Tamari, sesame oil, scallions, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes....OR....

I dunno....

I'd be eternally grateful for your ideas. Thanks in advance.

  1. Maybe I should mention. I have a gas grill. I also have a convection oven. And I have a pretty well stocked spice cabinet. I also have fresh rosemary, chives and flat leaf Italian parsley in the garden.

    1. don't have any inspired suggestions for flavoring, but I've often cooked them in a crock pot, then used the generous amount of tender meat in any number of dishes like chili, casseroles, and sandwiches.

      1. With chicken thighs, I tend to go with grilled tandoori flavours. I think that would go well with turkey thighs, too, though the cooking would take a bit longer.

        Tandoori marinade:

        1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
        8 garlic cloves
        1 tablespoon ground cumin
        1 tablespoon sweet paprika
        1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
        ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
        ½ cup olive oil
        1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
        ¼ cup fresh lime juice

        1. Go ahead and hit me, but your thread title sounded like something overheard in the girl's locker room, in Junior High. :-) Glad you're not REALLY so down on yoruself, TMT! ;-)

            I thought the same thing. We should have a contest for the thread most strikingly misunderstandable!

              Haha. I'm not much of a linguist, am I?

              I was going to suggest the Stairmaster and some moisturizer.

                I was going to offer my sympathies. From the other smartass responses it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one here with a twisted mind.

            3. my first thoughts were marinated (lemon & herbs) & grilled; turkey osso bucco; or a Moroccan-spiced braise or tagine.

              for inspiration:
