Sage Butter Turkey Injection


This is a delicious injection recipe that works perfectly for your Holiday turkey, but I use it often for roasted or smoked chickens when I cook in the fall.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper


  1. In a saucepan, heat all ingredients until butter is melted and spices are incorporated. All to cool down. Before it thickens too much, inject poultry in thighs, legs, breasts, and along the breast bone. Allow to sit for 1 hour before cooking.
