Top Review by Sheila in Canada

Well this recipe is certainly easy. Not much work. I didn't have any potatoes so I just did the turkey thighs (2). The flavors were good, but the turkey could have been more tender. Next time (there will be a next time) I will lower the temperature to 300* and cook for longer, maybe 1 1/4 hours. Sheila in Canada
