"With a white meat eater and a dark meat eater in the home, this worked well for us. No real mess and very tasty. The only thing I would change is that I would put the thigh in for 15 minutes and then add the breast. The flavor of the mushrooms was amazing and the taste of the turkey was outstanding as well. Definitely a keeper."
