Turkey breast and thigh dilemma

empowah | Nov 24, 2008 11:46 PM

This Thanksgiving I'm trying Mark Bittman's braised turkey recipe, which calls for one turkey breast and four turkey thighs.

Does anyone know where in L.A. I could get good quality, reasonably priced breasts and thighs?

I considered buying an $8 supermarket whole turkey, and hacking it apart myself, but I've heard bad things about the water-injected, hormone heavy Butterballs they tend to carry. Would the separate, pre-butchered breasts and things be any better?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
