Pretty good. Gravy was awesome. The only thing missing from this recipe is some sage. It definitely made something nice out of a cheap leg of turkey.

We totally enjoyed this recipe! The baking time works beautifully. I've always baked chicken pieces at one temperature the entire time in the oven. Baking at the higher temperature gets the meat cooking then the lower temperature finishes it without drying it out. I will bake chicken this way from now on! It is juicy, tender, and melts in your mouth. An unusual occurance for meat but a delicious one!!!!

That was great.Used all fresh herbs, and sage instead of rosemary, which I don't like. There was nothing left. Will do this again

These were fantastic - Australia is not a big turkey eating place & at the moment there are HUGE turkey legs on special for $4.00 for 2. I used fresh herbs, they were so tender Turkey is ether tough or just right no one could fail with this. Next time I will try a bit of Vietnamese mint and a drop of liquid smoke

Good recipe - I modified it a bit and cooked my drumsticks in the pressure cooker. Came out excellent. I browned the legs first then proceeded with the recipe pretty much the same way - just in the pressure cooker for about 20 minutes or so. Very tender , very tasty ! Made gravy with the juices and served with mashed potatoes & veggies, hubby and 2 year old devoured it all. Thanks !

I can't believe I didn't rate this recipe. It's very nice, and a great substitute for a whole roasted turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas. YUM! The drumsticks got a little overcooked the second time I tried this, so make sure to watch the cook time. But the drippings make the most delicious gravy I've ever, ever had. Just TOO good. Thanks so much! I'll probably be making this again for Thanskgiving this year. It's much easier to do this for two than make a whole turkey.
