Smothered Turkey Wings


* 4 turkey wings

* 2 bell peppers ( I used red and green), julienned

* 1 medium size onion, julienned

* 4-5 cloves of garlic.

* Season to taste-I used

* 1/2 tsp seasoning salt

* 1/2 tsp onion powder

* 1/2 tsp garlic powder

* 1/2 tsp paprika

* 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning

* 1/2 tsp tony chachere’s no salt seasoning

* 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

* 1/4 tsp black pepper

* 2 tbs oil

* 2 cups chicken broth

* 1/4 cup flour

* 2 tbs butter

* Optional fresh herbs- Sage, Thyme, Oregano


1. In a blow, add turkey wings, bell peppers, onion and garlic

2. Coat with oil. Ensure meat is thoroughly covered with oil

3. Add seasoning to meat and veggies. Massage the seasoning into the meat.

4. Optional* Let marinate for 1 hour to overnight

5. Add to a baking pan and add herbs if using

6. Mix chicken broth and flour to create a slurry. Make sure there are no flour lumps

7. In open spaces between the turkey wings pour chicken broth slurry on the bottom of the pan. Make sure not to pour over the turkey wings ( don’t worry, it will thicken up and become gravy!)

8. Place dollops of butter on top of the turkey wings

9. Cover with foil and bake on 350 for 1 hour

10. After 1 hour of baking, remove the foil and baste turkey wings with gravy/pan dripping

11. Bake another hour uncovered, basting every 20 minutes until turkey wings are tender (add more water or chicken broth 1/4 cup at a time if gravy is low)

12. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving
