For the Turkey Drumsticks:

  • 4 turkey drumsticks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Sage and Onion Sauce:

  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Prepare the Turkey Drumsticks:

Pat dry the turkey drumsticks with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Season them generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Sear the Drumsticks:

In a large skillet or oven-safe pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey drumsticks and sear them on all sides until they’re golden brown. This step locks in moisture and adds flavor.

Create the Sage and Onion Sauce:

In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add thinly sliced onions and cook until they become golden brown and caramelized.

Infuse with Aromas:

Stir in the chopped sage leaves and minced garlic, allowing their aromatic essence to fill the kitchen.

Creamy Elegance:

Pour in the chicken broth, followed by the heavy cream. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.

Simmer and Reduce:

Let the sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes, allowing it to reduce and thicken. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Return the Drumsticks:

Carefully nestle the seared turkey drumsticks back into the skillet with the sage and onion sauce. Spoon some of the sauce over the drumsticks to coat them.

Oven Roasting:

If your skillet is oven-safe, transfer it to a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C). Roast the turkey drumsticks in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).


Baste the drumsticks with the sage and onion sauce occasionally to infuse them with even more flavor.

Serving and Garnish:

Once the turkey drumsticks are cooked through and the sauce has melded beautifully, remove them from the oven. Garnish with additional chopped sage leaves for a touch of freshness.

Plate and Indulge:

Serve the tender Turkey Drumsticks with Sage and Onion Sauce over a bed of your favorite side dishes. The luscious sauce complements the succulent meat, creating a culinary masterpiece.

Whether it’s a special occasion or a desire for gourmet comfort, this dish embodies the joy of bringing exceptional tastes to your table.
