How To Do A Cajun Turkey Injection

Hey guys! Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m teaching you how to do a turkey injection. Isn’t this the coolest kitchen gadget you’ve ever seen? For this recipe you will need: 1/4 cup oil, 3 tablespoons worcesershire sauce, 3 tablespoons seasonings (we’re using cajun seasoning), 1 tablespoon salt and you’ll also need 1/4 cup of water. Most importantly you’ll need a poultry injector. You can find this at places like Walmart and target or you can buy a heavy duty one off of Amazon. We’ll put our oil in a small saucepan. and add in the water. Next pour in your Worcestershire sauce and add in your seasonings, and salt. Stir it over medium heat for just a couple of minutes until the spices have a chance to release their flavor. You’ll know because you’ll smell it. We already brined this turkey so we know it’s going to be nice and moist and flavorful. Now we’re going to use the injection to give it little bursts of flavor all throughout. If you want to learn how to brine click right here. I have another video showing you how. For now we’re going to start with the breast side down. Suck up the sauce into your injector. We’ll poke a few holes here and there and inject a little sauce into each one. We don’t need too many on the backside because there isn’t a lot of meat back there. We’ll spread out the leaked sauce here all over the skin. Now flip your turkey on over so the breast side is up. Inject little amounts all over the breasts, legs, and thighs. This is where you want all your flavor. When there isn’t enough sauce left in the pan to fill up your injector easily… Just brush the rest of the sauce over the turkey. This will make the skin nice and crispy and flavorful. And that’s how you inject a turkey. We’re just going to toss this in the fridge for about 3 hours before roasting and if you want to see how to roast it you’ll click here.
