4 turkey drumsticks

1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

2 tablespoons canola oil

4 cups low-sodium organic chicken stock

2 cups canned whole San Marzano tomatoes, crushed by hand

1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, minced

2 teaspoons pure maple syrup

2 cloves garlic

2 yellow onions, sliced

1 bay leaf

1 sprig fresh thyme

2 cup uncooked butter beans, rinsed


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. 
  2. Sprinkle the turkey drumsticks with the pepper, salt and paprika and rub in the spices. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear each drumstick on all sides until golden and crisp, a few minutes per drumstick.

  4. Ladle the butter beans and sauce onto the serving plates and top with a drumstick.
