2 servings

"This recipe was one I originally used for lamb shanks," writes Enid Karp from Encinitas, California. "I decided it just might work for turkey, too-and I was right! The meat turns out tender, juicy and very flavorful every time."


  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 turkey thighs (3/4 pound each)


  1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the buttermilk, onion, salt, pepper, celery seed, coriander and ginger; add turkey. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Place turkey in a greased shallow baking dish. Cover and bake at 325° for 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 30-35 minutes longer or until juices run clear and a thermometer reads 180°.
