Roasted Turkey

This delicious and succulent turkey was roasted for 6 hours. I cooked this with love to ensure that the inner part will not be raw, that's why I applied the slow roasting, and the result is amazing! A tender and juicy roasted turkey, beyond compare.

1 whole turkey ( this one is almost 6 kilos)
1/2 cup oregano flakes
1/2 cup lemon or calamansi juice
1 litre Sprite
salt and pepper to taste

1.Marinate the turkey overnight with Sprite, salt and pepper.
2.Remove from marinade then sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper, massage well then spread evenly the oregano flakes.

3. Roast in a preheated oven at 100C for 4 hours, then after 4 hours increase the temperature to 150C then roast for an hour and a half, then after this increase the temperature to 200 and roast for 20 minutes then turn off the heat.
4. The result is a well cooked,  tender and juicy turkey that is now ready to be served. Enjoy!

If you have a special way of cooking turkey do not hesitate to share it with me.


  1. Do you have to cover the turkey in aluminum foil in roasting it? Thank you so much
