Here's how to order Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey so you can make your Thanksgiving effortless. You've got some options when it comes to ordering, so let's cover the all the bases.

1. Locate a Popeyes location near you.

The first step to ordering a Cajun Style Turkey is finding out if your local Popeyes has them available. You can all or visit the location to check on whether or not it will be carrying the limited-time offering.

2. Buy a turkey as soon as possible.

It's possible that a Popeyes near you already has Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkeys in store, according to the brand. If they do, you can purchase one right away and take it home.

3. Preorder a turkey if your location hasn't stocked them yet.

If it is not yet available at your Popeyes, the chain suggests preordering your Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey since these tend to sell out fast. If you have a local Popeyes location selling the birds, you can call or walk in to preorder your turkey. Then, you'll be able to pick up your turkey on a future date or schedule a specific date for pick-up. Furthermore, you don't have to pay upfront on the day you preorder if you would rather wait to pay when you pick up your turkey. Sounds easy enough, and it's definitely convenient if you're planning a Thanksgiving celebration ahead of time.

This isn't the first Thanksgiving season that Popeyes has released its Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey for customers. It was last seen during Thanksgiving 2018, and the thankfully it's back for another year of easy dinner prep.

The famous restaurant does a great job at creating limited-time, seasonal fare for customers. It even came back with its Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie for the first time in five years in September 2019. Of course, the turkeys have been sold at Popeyes with a lot more regularity than those pumpkin-y baked goods, but I'm still here for all the pumpkin-flavored goodness. In fact, they'll probably pair well as a dessert.

You can preorder a Popeyes' Cajun Style Turkey now to save the frustration (and avoid the kitchen as much as possible) this Thanksgiving. Precooked and ready to go sounds like the best kind of turkey to me.
