Default Tough Turkey!

Well, Thanksgiving is over and the huge reminder is a 25 lb tough turkey in the fridge. Dark meat is okay, but light is dry and a little tough. Any suggestions for pepping up a dry turkey??

Yes, there are several ways. 1 is to use turkey juice but to save on fat and calories, boil up some chicken boulion/chicken broth, put the white meat turkey in a baking dish, pour the chicken broth over the turkey (use as much as you like) and cover it with alum. foil tightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or so, enuf to heat it well. The foil will keep the moisture in and the broth will give it flavor
