You don’t need to buy a gigantic turkey to enjoy that lovely holiday feeling turkey give you, buy a turkey breast and roast it!
Why is turkey relegated to the holidays? Turkey is a lean source of protein, and every bit as delectable as the other “white” meats – chicken and pork.
It can’t get much easier to make a meal than roasting a turkey breast. Just rub on your favorite seasonings, pop it in the oven and walk away for a few hours. You’ll have plenty for dinner, and some tasty sandwiches during the week.
Be sure to buy turkey breast with the bone-in. When you pull that turkey out of the oven, it will have fantastic flavor if you roast it with the bone in – and if you over cook it, it’s less likely to turn into shoe leather. Most large grocery stores carry turkey breasts, so it’s not necessary to buy the whole bird and make a production out of the event.
I say, “Eat turkey!” Why wait for the holidays? Happy cooking!
- 4 pounds Bone-in Turkey Breast
- 5 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup low sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons thyme
- 1. Preheat oven to 350.
- 2. In a blender or food processor combine garlic, 1/4 cup chicken broth, olive oil, dijon mustard and thyme.
- 3. Pour half of the garlic mixture over the turkey and roast in the oven for 2 hours until a thermometer reaches 160 degrees. I take my turkey out just before it reaches 160 as it will continue to cook for several minutes while it rests.
