  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sprinkle flour into oven bag and place it in a 9x11-inch pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

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 ne...

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 oli...

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

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

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 defin...
