With Thanksgiving coming, I was wondering, how much do you think chicken and turkey are alike? Would you substitute one for the other in recipes? Some recipes? Why or why not?

To me turkey has an entirely different taste from chicken. It also has a different texture; to me it's more stringy. Perhaps in a dish that has a lot of sauce you might be able to get away with it, but if I ate it I'd notice since I love chicken and loathe turkey.

I am still looking for some turkey wings so I can make some turkey hot wings.
I do think turkey and chicken are way different, like Mandalay said.

I do love smoked turkey. Sunday House makes a good one! One year we had a local BBQ place smoke a turkey for thanksgiving, and just for back up bought a Sunday House. Hmmm, Sunday House was the best.

I love chicken, and hate turkey.
It would be a no brainer for me.
I dont do turkey. (unless I am trying to be polite, like the other day when my boss brought me some)
Unless it is a ""fresh"" white meat sandwich, and you know thats a rareity for a city girl.
Even then,--thats pushing it for me.
Lat time I had fresh turkey was at my Aunts farm back in 1994.
(they have turkeys running rampant on their farm)--
