A few months ago, I told you about the Ninja Cooking System and how much fun it is to use and create dinners for my family. I decided to cook our Thanksgiving in the ninja Cooking System this year and boy did it turn out well. I just had to share it with everyone. I really did not plan on posting this, so my pictures aren’t the best on the planet, but after the turkey breast was done and dinner was ready I was super excited and had to share how simple it was. So, I’m sharing it with all of my readers… you will not believe the dinner that included a 6 lb turkey breast; Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry sauce, German Bread Dumplings and gravy from the Turkey drippings took me from start to finish 90 minutes and that included cooking the turkey in the Ninja Cooking system. Pretty amazing … isn’t it??
I still can’t believe that I was able to put a Turkey Dinner on the table in THAT short of a time. Check out how I made the Turkey Breast in the Ninja Cooking System and you will want to add this amazing kitchen gadget to your Christmas list… TRSUT me, it’s worth every penny!!
Toss the onions, the celery and the carrots in the Cooking pot, set on stovetop setting medium, add a little butter and sauté the veggies; add the thawed Turkey (or turkey breast) and sear on each side till golden brown; I set the stove top on high to sear the Turkey; took about 10-15 minutes.
Once your Turkey is seared and nice golden; add the chicken stock; stir all your veggies and close the lid; turn the Ninja Cooking System to Oven 375F and set for 1 hr. ~ walk away and prepare all your other side dishes like Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce and maybe our German Bread Dumplings; all is home made and took no time at all.
Once the hour is up; remove the lid and look at your beautiful Turkey; isn’t it beautiful? So moist, flavorful and just simple unbelievable that it cooked on it’s own in an hour. Remove Turkey and let rest on a cutting board for a few minutes; in the meantime you can use the Ninja Cooking System; turn it back to stovetop medium and head the turkey drippings along with the veggies that are left in the pot and make a Turkey Gravy… Voila; dinner is served in about 90 minutes or less…
This was my very first Thanksgiving dinner that I cooked at home; we usually go visit my In-Laws, we still do, but I wanted some of my favorite dishes that they will not serve and since it was so simple, I’m glad I decided to dish up a super delicious dinner for my family with plenty of leftovers.
Happy Thanksgiving from our Family to Yours… Why spend it all in the kitchen? Enjoy your family…
