Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sprinkle flour into oven bag and place it in a 9x11-inch pan.

  • Spread onion, celery, and carrot pieces on the bottom of the bag. Rinse turkey thighs and pat dry with paper towels. Rub olive oil under the skin and on the outside of the thighs.

  • Sprinkle seasoned salt liberally on turkey thighs and rub it under the skin (see Cook's Note). Arrange thighs on top of vegetables. Close the bag with the tie. Make six slits in the top of the bag with a sharp paring knife. Place pan in the oven, making sure oven bag does not touch top heating element.

  • Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thigh meat reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

I use Morton® Nature's Seasons® Seasoning Blend.

The cooked vegetables can be put through a strainer and added to the juices to make a flavorful gravy. If you can't find thighs at your grocery store already packaged, ask the butcher to cut them from whole turkeys. The thighs should be very tender and juicy. If your oven runs hot and the thighs seem a bit dry, decrease the cooking time five minutes at a time.

WooHoooo, I get first dibs on reviewing a recipe! This was an amazingly easy & delicious recipe. I added extra carrots & onion and only used 2 thighs but it was a fabulous meal for two. I threw the bones, leftover meat & veggies with the juices in a pan later to cook up some freezable broth as well! The only thing I will change next time is to cut open the cooking bag about 45 min in to allow the skin to crisp up a little. Otherwise, it was a Winner! Thanks, MJ!! Read More

This dish took way longer than 20 minutes to prep. An hour cooking resulted in still hard veggies and still raw turkey. Had to finish it off under broiler then in microwave. The veggies were nearly swimming in grease from the thighs. Family waited a long time for mediocre unsatisfying dinner. Disappointed! Read More

Great recipe! Hubby wanted turkey for Father's Day, I bought two turkey thighs and this fit the bill nicely :) I have cooked for many years and have to admit this was my first time using an oven bag. Turkey was wonderfully juicy and flavorful. As suggested by another reviewer, I opened the bag and switched the broil on for the last few minutes to crisp up the skin. Thanks :) Read More

I didn't have a cooking bag, so just used foil....opened the top the last few minutes so it could brown. Did have to increase cook time though. Put a few garlic slivers under the skin with olive oil. Husband scarfed it down, delicious, and easy. Comfort food without guilt! Yummy Read More

I love this recipe for turkey thighs. I've made it several times first in oven bags and now in a Dutch Oven. It turns out great every time! The turkey is always tender juicy and full of flavor. The veggies and the juices from the turkey are always delicious as well. It's an easy recipe too. All you need is time. It takes just over an hour from start to finish. I usually cook it with two thighs but keep the same amount of veggies. Delish! Read More

I used butter. Two thighs. Ridiculous sweet potato. Salt-and-pepper. It was excellent. Love love the Reynolds cooking bags. Use them all the time Read More

This was good. I wish I'd used more seasoning on the turkey but the recipe was nice and simple. I made the gravy as described by blending the juices and some of the veggies together. Will definitely make again. Read More

Similar to other reviewer only used 2 thighs and increased the carrots. It smelled like Thanksgiving in my kitchen. There was a lot of meat for 2 but we are every bite because it was so delicious. Teamed with asparagus and puréed potatoes and carrots. Will definitely make this again. Lot of flavor for a quick prep. Read More

Loved the recipe. Both my husband and I found that the turkey was tender and juicy. We are both on a diet so I will prepare more celery and carrots instead of potatoes with the turkey. Nat Read More
