It is not for nothing that poultry meat is very popular in the fitness kitchen: turkey meat contains a lot of protein, magnesium and vitamin B. The meat of the leg is more aromatic and juicy, but at 8 percent, not quite as lean as the meat of the turkey breast.

Watch out for salmonella: As with other poultry, the turkey leg should be refrigerated continuously during transport. Since poultry may be contaminated with salmonella, it must be completely cooked through before consumption. To prevent the turkey leg from drying out, you should regularly baste the meat with the gravy.
