How do you order your Popeyes Cajun Turkey?

The Popeyes Cajun Turkey is expected to be available starting Nov. 1, 2022. Not every Popeyes location is selling turkeys, but you can double-check by calling your local Popeyes or their corporate offices (1-877-767-3937).

If they are selling them, all you have to do is go to the counter and ask for your turkey. You can even get it via drive-thru. Unfortunately, it isn’t available through the Popeyes app, so you won’t be able to order this item online.

Last year, each turkey cost $39.99 – $59.99 depending on your location (mine cost $54.99). We expect the price to remain the same.

 

How do you thaw your Popeyes Cajun Turkey?

Unfortunately, Popeyes Cajun-Style Turkey isn’t going to be ready on pickup. You’ll have to thaw it and reheat it yourself. There are two different ways you can thaw your Popeyes Cajun-Style Turkey.

First, you can let it sit in your fridge for 72 hours to fully thaw.

Or you can submerge it in cold water for 10 – 12 hours. You’ll have to change the water every 30 minutes to fully thaw properly.

 

How do you reheat your Popeyes Cajun Turkey?

To reheat your Popeyes Cajun Turkey, you’ll first need to preheat your conventional oven to 375 degrees and place the turkey on a large roasting pan with its juices in the pan. Get some aluminum foil and form a seal around the edges of the pan.

Once the oven is done preheating, place the turkey on the lower rack for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the foil and cook for another 30 minutes and until the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees.

Be sure to let it sit for 20 minutes to cool before carving, and then you’re all set.

 

 

You still might be able to get a free turkey from the store, though.
