    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is SOOOO good! You can double the complete recipe and bake in a roaster pan, throw in a chopped green bell pepper and/or a jalapeno pepper also if desired! Four small turkey legs can be used in place of the chicken, if using larger turkey legs then double the cranberry sauce and BBQ sauce, also the cooking time will need to be increased.

      This was a very tasty recipe. I was looking to do something different with the split turkey breast and 4 drumsticks that I had, and this recipe worked out perfectly. I had to make a few minor adjustments: no celery because I didn't have any, and I substituted grape jelly because I didn't have cranberry sauce. I did add the optional cayenne pepper and it was very subtle. I also added a few cut up sweet potatoes to the pan as a side dish. The taste was tangy..A good balance of sweet and slightly sour. This recipe yields a good amount of sauce; if you just want to use the sauce to baste the turkey, you could probably halve the sauce recipe.

      Loved the recipe. Wonderful flavor & appearance. I did a large turkey leg so I covered it for the first 40 minutes and then uncovered if for the last 50 minutes - Done to perfection

      This was very good! We added the optional chopped green pepper, and a couple teaspoons of serrano pepper puree we had in the pantry, and used bone-in chicken breasts. Next time I think I'll remove the skin from the chicken before baking, just to make it a bit more heart-healthy. This is defintely a keeper!
