  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Citrus-Marinated Grilled Turkey
  • 4 Turkey Thighs
  • 4 Turkey Wings
  • 3 Oranges (juice & zest strips)
  • 6 Garlic Cloves (smashed)
  • 1 Jalapeno (sliced into coins)
  • 4 Sprigs Parsley
  • 2 Sprigs Oregano
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil (plus more for grilling)
  • Salt
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 can of BUSH'S® Southern Pit Barbecue Grillin' Beans®
  • Summer Salad
  • 1 Lemon (zest & juice)
  • 2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 6 cups Mixed Greens
  • 1/2 Red Onions (slivered and rinsed with water)
  • 2 Heirloom or Vine-Ripened Tomatoes (cut into wedges)
  • Season the Turkey with Salt. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl or divide between a few re-sealable bags. Place the Turkey pieces in the Marinade and allow to sit for 4 hours or until ready to grill.
  • Prepare grill by cleaning and oiling the grates then heat to medium-high (about 400°F).
  • Allow the Turkey to sit out 20-30 minutes before grilling to come to room temperature. Remove the Turkey from the Marinade and allow the excess to drip off. Discard Marinade. Place the Turkey pieces on the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes on the first side, until dark golden and crispy. Some char marks are good. Flip and continue to cook on the second side until dark golden and the internal temperature registers 180°F on an instant read thermometer. Remove pieces from the grill as they finish cooking.
  • Allow the Turkey to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve warm with Summer Salad and a side of BUSH’S® Southern Pit Barbecue Grillin' Beans®.
  • For Summer Salad: Whisk together the Lemon Juice & Zest, Vinegar and drizzle in Olive Oil until slightly emulsified, about 1/3 cup. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste. Toss with the Greens, Onions and Tomatoes.
