Storing

You can store your turkey wings in an airtight bowl and place them in the refrigerator, or you can place them in a ziplock bag. When warming your food, just place them in the oven for about one minute, and you should be ready!

How to reheat?

You want to keep the meat nice and juicy when reheating turkey wings. Sometimes leaving your turkey wings in the oven for too long will cause them to become dry.

So, I will always recommend warming them up in the microwave for about one minute or until they reach your desired temperature. Another way is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and allow them to reheat for fifteen minutes or until the wings reach your desired temperature.

Common Questions

How to tuck in turkey wings for roasting

Lift the turkey wings and tuck the wing of the turkey, or you can cut the wing off. It doesn't have a ton of meat. It's pretty much bones.

What time of year do you cook Turkey wings?

Honestly, Turkey wings aren’t just a during-the-holidays type of meal. They are for any time of the year. I will tell you that they are pretty difficult to find when I search for them in the store during the off-season (anything other than the holidays). You may have to call your local grocery stores to make baked turkey wings before going on a wild goose chase.

How To Choose turkey wings?

When shopping for turkey wings in the store, always remember to go for the unfrozen ones first. The reason for saying this is simply because they tend to be fresher. You can definitely choose to get frozen Turkey wings if that is all they have in stores. Another thing you want to ensure when choosing the meat for baked turkey wings is that there are no bruises on the skin of the turkey meat. You can tell by the skin appearing to be blue or reddish.

What time of year do you cook Turkey wings?

Baked turkey wings are a delicious meal, but when you think of turkey wings, you maybe think of Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Mother’s Day. I get it, but turkey can be found in any major grocery store. In addition, I found my turkey wings at my local Food Lion. I must say that I did ask the guy in the meat department if he had any because I didn’t see any on the floor. To my surprise, he said yes. He went in the back and came back with two packs. Go figure. HAHAHA. The moral of the story is yes; you can purchase turkey wings year around.

How to cut turkey wings?

When you buy turkey wings out of the store, you will notice some come with a whole which is a wing and leg. You want to cut the turkey wings at the joint.

Be careful because Turkey wings are a rough cut of meat. Once you separate them at the joint, you shouldn’t have two pieces of meat. You also don’t have to cut them; that is just fine.

Are Turkey wings healthy for you?

This is a question that I hear often. Turkey wings are unhealthy for you. They are very high in fat and protein. They have zero carbs. Having all of those things combined makes this a great keto-friendly meal. The only thing you will need to do is remove the potatoes from this recipe. I can assure you that Turkey is among the healthiest choices of meat! You won’t go wrong with this one. From the taste to the nutritional gains.

Why are turkey wings so tough?

Turkey wings are generally tough, but if you cook them correctly, they won’t be. Oven-baked turkey wings can become very tough if you overcook them or even undercook them. You can solve this problem easily by using a meat thermometer. The correct inside temperature should be 165 degrees.

What can I pair these turkey wings with?

These turkey wings will go great with my asparagus or brussel sprouts. You can also pair these turkey wings with my white rice. Turkey wings are a recipe you can have all by themselves, but they taste much better when served with other sides. Another great side to pair these wings with is my roasted broccoli or my keto green bean casserole.
