    Making this tonight. Elise, do you think it would work to just throw in the veggies during the last 20mins of cooking?

    I made this yesterday. The family loved it. I’ll be making it again, soon. Thanks.

    I could not believe how rich and flavorful this was for using so few ingredients! I used water and white wine for the braising liquid and potatoes and carrots for the veggies, and also added some dried thyme and a bay leaf. Didn’t really need the cornstarch as the potatoes thickened it up nicely. Going back the store to see if I can score some more drumsticks at .99/lb so I can make this a bunch more times!

    Wow…I just made this tonight and about cried from how delicious it was! Exaggeration aside, it’s been a very long time since I’ve had such tender, juicy, and flavorful meat. I plan to make this for Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    My husband and I made this recipe last night and it was fantastic! The only thing we modified was the onion – we cut it to 1/2 cup because I am a bit sensitive to onion lol. This one is going in my book of bests :)

    I just made this tonight. My wife doesn’t like dark meat, this was a perfect way to use up the leg/thigh from thanksgiving. Very easy to make and I suspect the leftovers will reheat very well tomorrow night. Thanks.

    This looks great, how would you suggest cooking this if using a slow cooker?

    I don’t usually cook with a slow cooker, so wouldn’t know what to advise. ~Elise

    A friend had given me a few turkey legs and I had no ideas how to make them other than roasting them in the oven. I was very happy to have found this recipe. The recipe is easy to make and it tasted great! As for vegetables, I used onions, celery and carrots. Sauteed them altogether and braised with the turkey legs. I think next time I will take off the skin when I brown the legs as the sauce was a bit oily for me (but so full of flavor). I served this over basmati rice (added some chopped parseley). We gobbled up the whole dish for lunch and dinner. I was sad when there was nothing left! Yum!!

    This is a fantastic recipe! I love this recipe so much that I am making it again and it has only been 1 month since Canadian Thanksgiving!!!! I wouldn’t change a thing.
