  3. Working with once piece at a time, place turkey wing drummette in the bowl and coat with sauce (note: the sauce is pretty thick). Place drummette in baking dish and repeat with remaining pieces of turkey. Pour any remaining sauce over the turkey.
  4. Cover baking dish with with foil. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until turkey is thoroughly cooked. Allow to cool and shred turkey off the bone.
  5. Peanut Dressing:
    Blend ginger, shallots, peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and oil in a blender until smooth, set aside.
  6. Cabbage & Radish Slaw:
    Put cabbage, daikon radish, red radishes, scallions, shredded turkey, and peanuts in a large serving bowl. Pour in peanut dressing and toss thoroughly to combine.
  7. Cut pita pockets in half and spoon slaw/turkey mixture into pocket and enjoy!!!!

    OR (instead of mixing turkey in with slaw)

    Cut pita pockets in half and fill with shredded turkey and place slaw on top.

    Both ways are excellent!!
