Tony Chachere’s Shares Deep-Fried Turkey Recipe

Tony Chachere's

Opelousas, Louisiana-based Tony Chachere’s has released a deep-fried turkey recipe featuring the company’s Butter Marinade. 

Tony’s is promoting its marinades and seasonings as a Thanksgiving “favorite” this year. Its butter marinade can be injected into the turkey and its seasoning spread around the outside.

Tony’s Deep-Fried Turkey

Ingredients: three-five gallons of peanut oil (or any oil of your choosing), one turkey (12 pounds), and any Tony’s Butter Injectable Marinade or Original Creole Seasoning for additional taste.

The deep-fried turkey takes about 45 minutes for preparation time, 36 minutes for cooking time and the food serves eight-10 people. 

Recipe instructions:

  1. Prepare a turkey fryer or a large stock pot.
  2. Fill the fryer with no more than ¾ oil and heat to 350°F.
  3. Make sure the turkey is completely thawed.
  4. Pat turkey dry with paper towels as the turkey must be dry before frying.
  5. Remove giblets from the turkey.
  6. Inject the turkey with Tony’s Butter Marinade and space out the injection sites so the marinade goes throughout the entire turkey.
  7. Season the inside of the turkey with Tony’s seasoning. Then lift the skin of the bird and massage Tony’s seasoning under the skin. Next, coat the outside skin with Tony’s seasoning.
  8. Allow the turkey to sit until it reaches room temperature.
  9. Lower the turkey into the oil and allow it to fry for about three minutes per pound until the meat thermometer reads 165°F when inserted into the thickest part of the breast.
  10. Remove the turkey from the fryer and drain it on paper towels.
  11. Allow the turkey to sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
