Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to Gas 7/220C/425F
  • Into an oven dish, just big enough to hold it, place the turkey leg.
  • Sprinkle over the garlic powder, onion powder, dried sage and chicken bouillon powder
  • Place the onion pieces around the meat.
  • Pour the hot water over, so as to dissolve the dry ingredients. The liquid should be about ¾ of the way up the dish.
  • Insert a meat thermometer (if using) in the thickest part of the thigh (NOT touching bone as this will give a false reading).
  • Cover the dish tightly with foil.
  • Cook for 1 hour.
  • Uncover, turn the leg over and cook for a further half to one hour.
  • A thermometer should read 75-80ºC.
  • Juices should run clear when the thickest part of the leg is pricked with a skewer.
  • Lift the leg portions out and put on a dish for carving. Remove the string or netting.
  • Pour the juices into a saucepan, and remove as much of fat from the surface as possible.
  • Squeeze in the lemon juice.
  • Heat the liquid gently, and add a 'slurry' made from the cornstarch and a little water.
  • Simmer for a few minutes until thickened.
  • Carve the meat and serve with the gravy.
