From the San Antonio Express-News, “Ask the CIA” feature, CIA Managing Director April Goess offers some tips for a petite Thanksgiving celebration that might be lighter on turkey, but not on tradition.
“Despite being the centerpiece of the table, turkey is generally not the superstar of the Thanksgiving plate. In place of a huge, takes-all-day turkey, consider roasting a split turkey breast or even a chicken instead. If you’re more of a dark meat person, go right for the good stuff and pick up some turkey thighs and drumsticks. You can roast them, but they’re also ultra-tasty and quick-cooking on the grill or smoker. This is a good year to experiment, so don’t be afraid to think outside the roasting pan.”
