Curious about how to make your Thanksgiving turkey ahead?

The best way to do this is to roast the turkey, then carve it into larger pieces, such as the whole breast lobes, the wings, the thighs, and the drumsticks. Place the pieces in a storage container, cover and chill up to 24 hours. To reheat, place the pieces in a roasting pan with some chicken broth. Cover the pan and heat through in a 350°F oven (the timing will vary according to the size of the bird, but allow about 45 to 60 minutes).
