Spice Up Thanksgiving with Cajun Turkey from Popeyes® Chicken & Biscuits
October 05, 2007 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA – Popeyes® Chicken & Biscuits spices up this year's Thanksgiving dinner with its succulent Cajun Turkey, influenced by the low-country combination of French and Southern cuisine. Cajun-style cooking has grown in popularity as a flavorful alternative that is sure to add Louisiana-style zest to the traditional holiday meal.
Beginning Nov. 1, customers can order a fully cooked Popeyes Cajun Turkey at participating restaurants while supplies last. Each turkey is infused with Popeyes' special Cajun spice blend, flavoring the bird deep to the bone, and then encrusted with another spicy Cajun seasoning to seal in the savory flavor of the meat. The turkeys are flash fried to create a delicious, crispy coating and then slow roasted to perfection.
"In Louisiana, Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving without a delicious Cajun Turkey on the table," said Kirk Waisner, Popeyes vice president of menu development. "We're excited to once again offer our customers the chance to enjoy this delicious bayou delight at their own holiday celebrations."
Popeyes Cajun Turkeys weigh approximately 12 to 14 pounds and feed eight to 10 people. Customers can locate a restaurant in their area selling Popeyes' authentic Cajun Turkeys by visiting www.popeyes.com after Nov. 1.
At-home chefs also can visit the Popeyes Web site at www.popeyes.com/recipearchives.asp for an easy-to-follow recipe to make Cajun Turkey from scratch as well as many delicious side items including Stuffed Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole and Oyster & Buttermilk Biscuit Holiday Dressing.
