Directions

  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.

Footnotes

  • 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!!

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 :)
