The grocery here often has fresh turkey legs and they're very inexpensive. I make this recipe using 4 or 6, however many happen to be in the package. I then take the meat off the bone and use it in recipes that call for cooked chicken or turkey.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -6 turkey legs
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 14 cup water


  1. Place turkey legs in Crock pot. Sprinkle with onion soup mix. Add 1/4 cup water.
  2. Cook on low 9-10 hours until done.
  3. Juice can be thickened with flour or cornstarch for gravy.

First off, don't cook as long as recipe calls for, the turkey will be dried out. I wish I'd cooked it about 5 hours as I tasted it at that point & it was moist & lovely, falling off the bone but by the time my honey got home (about 7 hours cook time) it was dried out & not very good. I did use cooking sherry instead of water & the flavor at first tasting was lovely, would have been wonderful had I served it after 5 hours on low so I'll give it 4 stars & remember to cook it 4 or 5 hours next time.

Very tasty and EASY. I used 3 drumsticks, 1/2pkg onion soup mix, sliced onion and can of mushrooms, cooked on high 3 1/2 hr, thickened the juice and served over pasta. My husband says this is a keeper.

This was delicious, with the juicy, flavorful meat falling right off the bone. I used six legs with skin removed. I used Dry Onion Soup Mix Substitute, and substituted 1/4 cup white wine for the water. It was a hit with my family! This is also definitely a very simple way to prepare cooked chicken or turkey for other recipes that call for it.
