How can anything be better than a slow roasted turkey that is beyond juicy and smothered in cajun seasoning?

It’s time for some turkey talk!

Cajun Spiced Roasted Turkey

Is anyone as excited as I am for Thanksgiving?! I seriously love this time of year. I just feel like everyone is in a good mood and the best in people shine this time of year.

Jake and I plan on spending Thanksgiving with his Mom and grandparents. They are the sweetest and I love spending the holiday with them. His grandpa has the best stories!

What are your Thanksgiving plans?! Tel me, tell me!

I am planning on bring several dishes this year including my famous chocolate pecan pie (which I won’t be able to have due to the Whole30) but I love making it! I am also bring the roasted autumn veggies I made in a previous post. I might even bring my Creamy Pumpkin soup as a starter!

Planning is everything on the big day. Once everything is planned, stress goes away. It’s magic.

So let’s talk turkey.

Jennieo made it easy with their Oven Ready Turkey! I mean how much easier it can get than simply taking the turkey out of its exterior bag and punching a few holes in their oven safe bag. This oven safe bag is pretty genius as it keeps the bird hydrated the whole time.

It also has a spicy twist. It’s rubbed with Cajun seasoning ALL over. It’s pretty incredible. Especially paired with some Cayenne Pepper Butternut Squash Fries!

Take Thanksgiving up a notch and make this Cajun Spiced Roasted Turkey this year!

Cajun Spiced Roasted Turkey






Preheat oven to 375 degrees F


Cut 6 slits into the oven safe bag and pull away from the turkey. This allows for proper steaming.


Add chicken stock into one of the slits


Roast in oven for approximately 4 hours or until turkey reaches 165 degrees F



If you do not have a Jennieo Oven Ready Turkey, you could use any turkey.
Dry Rub:
1 tbs of cajun seasoning
1 tbs cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp lemon pepper
Dry rub into skin of turkey and place into an oven safe bag and follow instructions above.

I know! It snuck up on us this year! I hope you make this! It’s so easy and I love it because I can pop it in the oven and not have to babysit it!
