Orangey Turkey Legs

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Hearty turkey drumsticks are marinated and basted with a tangy orange marinade. This is great for leftovers, but also a fine way to enjoy turkey throughout the year!

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • In a blender or food processor, mix the orange segments, vinegar, and brown sugar. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag, and mix in the reserved mandarin orange liquid and oil. Place the turkey drumsticks in the bag, seal, and marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place the marinated turkey drumsticks on the baking sheet, and season with salt.
  • Cover, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cover, and continue baking 1 hour, basting often with the remaining orange mixture, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).

  • Note:

    Leftover marinade may be heated and whisked with water and flour for a gravy-glaze.
