Roast turkey is the main dish served on the Thanksgiving and Christmas table by people celebrating this Christian event. In addition to these major events, I like to cook and serve turkey on other occasions, so I cook turkey very often during the fall and winter, when turkey meat is found in abundance at very convenient prices.
Most of the time I cook turkey soup with turkey neck or drumstick, turkey schnitzel with turkey breast, and roast turkey with turkey thighs.
Being a fan of turkey roast, I have many recipes that I use. Some include wine, others vegetables, while others are quite simple. Whoever wants, can find at the bottom of the page other turkey roast recipes.
Regarding this roast turkey thighs recipe, it is very easy to cook and does not require much time to actually spend in the kitchen even if the roast stays in the oven for a long time.
Being very simple and including few ingredients, there are not many cooking tips to share. I just emphasize that I recommend using the foil cooking technique for baking and allocating enough time for frying in the oven. In this way, the roast turkey thighs will be very tender on the inside and will have a crispy and golden crust on the outside that will delight all the people at the Thanksgiving or Christmas table.
Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it is also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein.
Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties. It is a very good source of the trace mineral selenium, which is an essential component required for thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. Scientific studies have suggested that selenium intake can bring down cancer incidence.
Turkey is believed to have mood-enhancing properties. It contains tryptothan, which produces serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps improve your mood. Tryptothan also plays an important role in strengthening the immune system, as suggested by scientific evidence.
The vitamin B6 and niacin present in turkey are essential for energy production in the body. Niacin is also important for converting the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the body into usable energy.Health benefits of eating turkey (https://www.turkeyfed.com.au/about-turkey/health-benefits/)
