Thanksgiving Turkey


Marinade for the Turkey:
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup lemon juice
2 garlic cloves minced
1 1/2 teas ground ginger
1 teas pepper

And
1 – 12 to 13 pound turkey

If you’re looking for a new marinade to try this year, I am sure you will like this one.

Combine marinade ingredients. Reserve 1 cup of mariande for basting. Pour remaining sauce into a 2 gallon resealable plastic bag.
Add turkey and seal bag. Turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight, turning a few times. Discard marinade in bag. Place turkey on a rack in a large roaster. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 4 to 4 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reads 185 degrees. Baste frequently with reserved marinade. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil. Cover and let stand 20 minutes before carving. Serves 8.
