Description

You don't have to wait for Thanksgiving to have roast turkey, especially when you can just cook the leg rather than the whole bird in much less time and without all the fuss. Here, the turkey leg is marinated overnight (plan accordingly) with a tangy mixture of lemon and orange juice, garlic, port, and chilis. Then it's roasted with russet potatoes and served with a sweet potatoes, which are sliced and roasted alongside. All that's needed is some cranberry relish.
