    Meanwhile, in shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge the turkey thighs in flour mixture to coat.

    Heat oven to 350°F. In 12-inch skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add coated thighs to oil; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until well browned. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish; set aside.

    In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic to oil; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 tablespoon rosemary, bay leaf, 2 tablespoons parsley and the wine; continue cooking about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the lemon peel strips, tomato paste and broth. Drain mushrooms; discard the liquid. Add mushrooms to skillet. Heat to simmering then pour over the turkey in baking dish.
