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.

Braised Asian Turkey Thighs

By author Dish Ditty Recipes


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 onion (red or yellow)
  • 4 turkey thighs (bone-in with skin)
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Dole's Orange Peach Mango Juice
  • 1/2 cup sherry
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Large bok choy (or two bags of mini, cut up)
  • 4 zucchini (cut up)
  • 3 green onions (chopped)


Step 1
In a large pan with lid, heat butter, olive oil, garlic and onions until onions start to get soft. Season turkey thighs with garlic salt & pepper. Brown the turkey thighs in the butter mixture on high heat.
Step 2
Add the soy sauce, juice, sherry and seasoned rice wine vinegar to the pan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, occasionally turning the turkey, for 40 minutes.
Step 3
Add the bok choy and zuccini, stir, cover and cook for 10 more minutes. Remove from pan and top with green onions.

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.
