Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Combine room temperature butter with thyme, rosemary, parsley, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

  • Pat turkey thighs dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.

  • Place potatoes, onions, and garlic on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Add turkey thighs and rub herb butter over the meat and under the skin. Top with lemon zest and juice.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Continue to bake, basting turkey with its own juices after 15 minutes, until no longer pink in the centers, about 30 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was really delicious! I used chicken thighs( 7 oz each), as turkey parts were not available the day before Thanksgiving. I was alone anyway so no one complained. I'll definitely do this again for family! Read More
