Fried Turkey...Any Ideas Wed, 01/12/11 3:15 PM (permalink)
Not as in the whole bird. Think you could do a smaller turkey like fried chicken? I have thought about this but still leary about doing it.

    If you got the right equipment, no reason why not.

      The best turkey I ever had was deep fried in peanut oil for about 35-40 minutes.  Crispy on the outside and very tender and moist on the inside.  Even the white meat of the breast was unusally moist which in my experience does not usually happen when you roast them.  The turkey stayed moist until it was totallly consumed.  That never happens when I roast a turkey in the over.

            I think the coating would burn before the bird was thoroughly cooked.

              You don't put a coating on deep fried turkey! Seasonings maybe but no breading

                I'm thinking the OP was asking whether you can cut up turkey into individual parts and pan-fry them like chicken.

                  I agree wit you, but trying to fry a turkey leg in a regular frying pan would be dicey, need something deeper that could hols 3-4 inches of oil, a pot would do, a tall one.

                      I would think Pan Frying turkey parts would be difficult since the pieces are larger than Chicken parts. The outside would be overcooked and the inside would be undercooked.
                      It might work if you par-roasted the turkey parts in an oven then finished them in a skillet.

                        That's what I was thinking. Par-cooking would be the way to go.

                          We smoke , fry ,bake and Grill turkey pieces all year long. You look in my freezer. Necks, wings, legs ,gizzards
                          and whole turkeys. If frying Turkey in the pan, needs to be turned more than chicken or will burn. Do Turkey wings alot, legs too.
