Does Your Family Want A Cajun-Seasoned Fried Turkey This Thanksgiving? From Popeyes?

In order to save time and their loved ones’ digestive systems, many Americans opt for a heat and serve turkey, adding their own side dishes as needed. Grocery store delis offer them, along with quick-serve restaurants. But would you turn to a fried chicken joint for your family’s Thanksgiving main course?

Popeyes hopes so. Their Cajun Style Turkeys are now a seasonal offering every year. They cost around $40, and you’ll have to reheat them before serving unless cold turkey is what your family is into. Their unique selling point? The seasonings, of course, and the fact that the entire bird (nine to thirteen pounds) is flash-fried.

    I think it would be good to see a list of large chains that do this sort of thing; both for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Like you said, grocery store delis often offer this sort of service, but it would be interesting to know where else I could go for a turkey I don’t have to cook myself.

    For those of us alone on the holidays, this would be perfect.

    It is kind of hard to make a Thanksgiving dinner for just one.

    If you’re in the central Maryland area, I highly recommend Maple Lawn Farms. (I’m in no way associated with them other than being a happy repeat customer.) They not only offer whole fresh turkeys raised humanely (you can see them strutting around the huge enclosures when you go pick yours up), but they also offer smoked whole turkeys and turkey breasts for those who don’t have the time or the inclination to roast your own.
