Popeyes Cajun turkeys are usually available in November through December each year. Each turkey weighs about nine to 11 pounds, and customers can buy them at participating Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants.
The fully cooked Popeyes Cajun turkeys offer a unique blend of Louisiana seasonings. During the marinating process, a Cajun spice blend is injected into the turkeys so that the turkey can absorb the flavor to the bone. The turkeys are flash-fried to create a crispy coating before they are roasted slowly. This technique prevents the loss of flavor and moisture during the cooking process. The restaurant chain also offers a special Next Day Cajun Turkey recipe for customers who can't finish the whole turkey in a single meal.
