"I poured the entire mixture over the turkey and put them in a 400? oven to bake for 25 mins. I basted them halfway through. I turned the oven down to 350 for about 5 or 7 mins to finish them, they were very thick through the center and I wanted to make sure they were cooked through. The mixture cooked down to a beautiful glaze, which I spooned over the turkey. When I stored the leftovers, I sliced it up and then poured the remaining glaze over the top. So good!"
