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'd be eternally grateful for your ideas. Thanks in advance.
Actually when I read the title, I thought, Amen sister, I feel your pain. Let's start a support group. Then I read the body of your topic, and get it.
I like the idea of scallion, oil, etc.. that's how I roll, in fact had chicken breasts that way last night. But with turkey legs, maybe you could bbq them? Using the usual vinegar and tomato base. Crock pot them first and finish on the bbq, and perhaps make pulled turkey legs on rolls? I'd do it.
Our favorite entree is oven braised turkey thighs.
Prehaet oven to 350. Season thighs liberally with poultry seasoning and s&p to taste and place into a large covered ovenware dish. (I use a big oval corning one.)
Add 1 1/2 cup chicken stock.
Cover and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Uncover and cook for 30 minutes more until the skin is crispy.
The meat will be very tender and moist and the skin crispy. Also, the fat will render out.
I am forced to make this close to once a week. We make it for company and friends who I've iven the recipe to have become devotees. Easy and delicious.
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.
