Expert Tips

  • Large slow-cookers accommodate turkey thighs, but oval-shaped cookers handle them the bet. Arrange the turkey thighs in a single layer to ensure even cooking.
  • Seasonings can fade after hours of slow cooking. To perk up flavor, sprinkle the sliced turkey with additional Cajun seasoning just before serving.
  • Seal any leftover turkey in a resealable plastic food storage bag and refrigerate it for up to two days.
