Spicy Turkey Legs Recipe

Your guests are sure to get a kick out of these flavorful turkey legs. For less spicy flavor, reduce the amount of hot sauce and inject 1/2 ounce into each leg. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 2/3 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
