Roasted turkey thigh – cold meat

Turkey is said to be the most healthy meat. It is also white meat as chicken is, but unless to chicken, turkey is more fussy when it comes to eating. It will only eat things that it considers to be healthy and good for him. That is why turkey breeding is much more expensive than chicken.

There is actually no big difference between the taste of chicken and turkey. Chicken meat is a bit more tender, whereas turkey is more filling.

My proposal is roasted turkey that will be served as a cold meat for sandwiches :)

Turkey thigh - preparation

Turkey thigh – preparation

To prepare the turkey you’ll need:

  • 1 big turkey thigh
  • marinade

Marinade ingredients:

  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • pinch of savory spices
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. vinegar


In a cup prepare a mixture of salt, pepper, oil, spices and vinegar.  Wash the meat and apply the prepared marinade – it’s important to do it a day before so that the meat will be tenderized. After that keep it in a fridge for several hours.

On the next day fry the thigh on a hot frying pan with some oil until it’s skin is brown. This procedure aims to retain all juices that are inside the meat – it will not be dry after roasting.

Than wrap the meat in aluminum foil and put into a hot oven. Bake it for 1 hour in 340°F.

Don’t unwrap it after baking – wait until it’s cooled and do it just before eating :)

Slice the meat and eat it in sandwiches with fresh vegetables :) I love it also with mayonnaise :)

×TIP It’s also a good idea to prepare more thighs at once – you can freeze them without unwrapping from aluminum foil and take out when you fill like eating some turkey :)
