Turkey in a Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
First time hosting Thanksgiving for my in-laws. I'll tell you how I did it, for any other first time hosts :) 21lb. frozen turkey, thawed it in a pan in the refrigerator for 3 days. Soaked it for 2 hours in 1 3/4 cup of Kosher salt and enough water to cover the bird. Rinsed off very well and dried with paper towels (a lot!). Rubbed EVOO, garlic powder and onion powder all over the outside, inside cavity, and under the breast skin on the breast meat (careful not to tear the skin). I chopped 1 large onion, 4 medium carrots, and 6 celery stalks. I put the bird in the bag, then on the pan rack then sprayed the top half of the bag with Pam to prevent sticking. I halved and cored a Braeburn apple and placed a healthy sprig of Thyme on each half and placed them in the cavity. I then filled the rest of the cavity with the chopped vegetables. Any vegetables that didn't fit inside the cavity went in the bag around the bird. Sealed the bag tightly with the tie and pricked a tiny hole in the bag right above the stuffed cavity. Cooked at 350 for 4hrs and 10 min. I didn't use any paprika. I meant to but I forgot, but my bird browned very well without it. The meat was sooo moist and flavorful. I didn't even use any salt or pepper. The taste was so close to my grandma's turkey! I don't usually eat the dark meat but tried it and actually liked it! There will be enough drippings for a lot of delicious gravy. Anyone wanting to impress their guests with the best tasting turkey, THIS IS IT!!!

Carol's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Sharon and Carol, thank you for sharing this recipe. It is absolutely delicious! I used your recipe for a sandwich mix. I left out the grapes this time (my husband doesn't like fruits in his meals) and also the diced Swiss (used sliced muenster cheese). Had canned white meat chicken in water on hand so used that instead (3-12.5 oz cans, drained). Prepared everything exactly as directed. This mix was moist and tasty! We have lots of leftovers to snack on with crackers, celery sticks, or to make more sandwiches for the week. Thanks again!

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Delicious! Followed suggestions from Cook4mycrew on March 11, 2007 (sort reviews by "most helpful"). Only used marinade ortion of recipe and used thin-sliced chicken breast. We grilled them instead of using a skillet. By far my favorite chicken marinade for tacos or burritos! Your search for an asada marinade will end here!
