Want to save some time and get a flavor boost this Thanksgiving? Why not deep-fry your turkey? Our Southern-fried-everything expert John McLemore has three amazing recipes.
For this recipe, inject your turkey with marinade to ensure your bird doesn’t dry out. Then, fry your turkey according to the specific safety instructions for your frying device.
This decadent turkey breast couldn’t be more enticing. Start by injecting a turkey breast with chicken broth, then deep fry according to your fryer’s instructions. Then, make a glaze of roasted pecans, honey and butter and pour it over your breast on a serving platter.
