I use chicken a great deal in Indian food, but never turkey, since I have bad associations with turkey, based on countless Christmas lunches in Britain, when tasteless, dried out turkey breast was often served with overcooked brussel sprouts and potatoes that had been deep-fried, rather than roasted.
Here in France, I buy a free range goose for Christmas dinner from an old woman who lives out in the sticks, and I then roast it and serve it with a decent French sauce. I do notice, however, that there is as much turkey meat in French supermarkets as there is chicken meat, so the French clearly don't have my bad associations. I think that Bernard Matthews has a lot to answer for!
