DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350.
  • I use bone-in with skin turkey thighs, it adds more flavor to the dish.
  • Take your turkey thighs and loosen the skin some without detaching.
  • Put a heaping tablespoon of pesto between skin and meat, cover with skin and lightly massage.
  • Take some left over pesto and rub over the outside of the thighs covering the top and bottom of each thigh with the pesto.
  • Take the sliced onion and put on parchment lined baking sheet pan. The onions should be in 2-3 small piles, one pile for each thigh.
  • Place turkey thighs on the onion piles.
  • Lightly grind pepper over the thighs.
  • Place in oven and bake until the tops are browned and the thighs are cooked completely through.
