Whilst turkey is traditionally American. I have always been fascinated with this chicken-like meat and thought I would give it a try for Sunday lunch. Given how big it is. Turkey is the ideal meal to make when you are having lots of family members over on a Sunday. Alternatively, you can make this recipe for friends and take left overs to school or work for lunch.
