Citrus Green Chile Turkey

We made a turkey for Astrid's Birthday dinner. We wanted to make it a citrus/soy with a hint of New Mexico - so we added some green chile to it. We made it in a bag and it turned out AMAZING. It was moist and yummy and well cooked! We completely made up the recipe and it was really great!


Ingredients:

18 lb turkey
turkey bag
2 onions, quartered and peeled
2 oranges, quartered
1 lemon quartered
1 cup soy
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons turkey herb seasoning (optional)
4 oz packet of green chile

Directions:

Preheat oven to about 350 F
1. Place defrosted turkey in a bag, making sure to remove all insides and gibblets and plastic bags that come with it.
2. Stuff with lemon, orange, and onion quarters. Ones that don't fit, just place on top and around.
3. Rub the Turkey seasoning on top.
4. Pour the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce around the turkey. Place the green chile on top.
5. Place the turkey in the oven and cook based on weight. Ours cooked for about 4.5 hours.
