    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    A very easy and delicious turkey dish! I most always make this dish with Kittencal's Crispy Potato and Green Onion Pancakes (Latkes) on the side, it goes so well together! You can also make this with chicken legs or pieces, just reduce the cooking time. This recipe can be doubled.

      So I had made turkey legs before and they didnt turn out so good. This time I was making them for my parents and husband so I knew they had to impress...this recepie definetly did. My dad gave it a 5 out of 5 and thats good since he can cook. I didnt add the green pepper and I left out the chili powder since my dad just had his gallbladder removed. Since I didnt have chicken boullion I subbed chicken brooth and didnt use water. It turned out great and I will definetly make again, Im gana try chicken next time just to try but turkey legs will be done again. Thanks

      I didn't have any green peppers on hand so I had to leave them out. For my BBQ sauce, I used Sweet Baby's sweet and spicy. My turkey legs turned out tender and with lots of flavor. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for another great recipe!

      I'm not a huge fan of the "turkey drumstick", but I had to cook the ones I had and this recipe did a fine job of that! I don't think I will use the green pepper next time. it just seemed 'out-of-place' but the turkey fell off the bone so I will try again with chicken and re-review. Thanks Kittencal! What would we (amateurs) do without chefs like you? Thank you!
