Add something sweet and sour to your family's Asian night! Serve turkey thighs - a saucy dinner you can fix and forget!
bone-in turkey thighs (about 2 pounds), skin removed
cup teriyaki baste and glaze (from 12-ounce bottle)
tablespoons orange marmalade
teaspoon grated gingerroot
clove garlic, finely chopped
Spray 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place turkey in slow cooker. Mix teriyaki glaze, marmalade, gingerroot and garlic; spoon over turkey. Turn turkey to coat with teriyaki mixture.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 9 to 10 hours or until juice of turkey is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
About 10 minutes before serving, remove turkey from cooker; place on serving platter. Remove and discard bones; cut turkey into serving pieces.
Mix water and cornstarch in 2-cup glass measuring cup or small microwavable bowl until smooth. Pour juices from cooker into cornstarch mixture; mix well. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking, until mixture boils and thickens slightly. Serve sauce with turkey.
A "teriyaki" recipe simply means it has a marinade made from a mixture of soy sauce, sake (or sherry), sugar, ginger and seasonings. Beef, chicken and fish are commonly used, but you can add a tasty twist to this Japanese-inspired dish by using turkey.
Fresh gingerroot tastes best in this dish, but if you're out, use ground ginger instead. You can use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the dried spice in place of the fresh seasoning.
