Braised Asian Turkey Thighs Recipe

I found this in my archives and had forgotten how much I liked it. Braised Asian Turkey Thighs is a wonderful way to serve turkey without it being Thanksgiving.

I remember when I made up this recipe. Safeway, our local grocery store, had a sale on turkey legs. We wound up getting a lot of them. So, I decided to do something with them that was a little different. This is what I came up with.

Simple ingredients with a simple presentation, but definitely a win on flavor.
