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

Wonderful recipe. I used regular sized potatoes, cut in thick slices. The turkey was very moist and flavorful. I will definitely make this again.

Made as a possibility for Thanksgiving, really nice, I had to turn up the heat at the end to get hem to brown, but a good way to make legs and thighs.
