This recipe is a very simple combination of turkey wings, a basic mirepoix of onions, carrots, celery, and condensed cream of chicken soup. Serve the wings with macaroni and cheese, potatoes, or rice, along with your family's favorite steamed vegetables.

This recipe works well with meatier turkey thighs as well. The seasonings are easily varied. Try sprinkling the turkey pieces with a little poultry seasoning or ground thyme. See more ideas in the tips and variations section under the recipe instructions.

Tips

  • Replace the turkey wings with turkey thighs or turkey legs. Larger pieces will take more time. The safe minimum temperature for turkey is 165 F/73.9 C.
  • Instead of wings, you can also use 6 to 8 bone-in chicken thighs in the recipe.

Recipe Variation

  • Cajun-Style: Instead of the French-inspired mirepoix, use a Cajun-style mirepoix: 1 cup of chopped onions, 1/2 cup diced celery, and 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper. Sprinkle the turkey pieces with 1 teaspoon of Cajun or Creole seasoning.
