This flavorful turkey breast is compact and delicious, perfect for a small family. Or, roast this turkey breast for the great sandwiches and leftovers you'll have for a few days.

What You'll Need

  • 1 turkey breast (bone-in, about 5 to 7 pounds)
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • For the Orange Glaze:
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces orange juice concentrate (about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (ground, or 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger)

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 325 F.
  2. Rub turkey breast lightly with vegetable oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Roast for about 2 to 3 1/4 hours, depending on the size of the turkey breast (stuffed will take longer). The cooking time guide should be on the turkey breast packaging. A meat thermometer will reach 170 F when the turkey is done. If necessary, tent with a piece of buttered or oiled foil during the last hour.
  1. Baste with glaze (instructions below) a few times the last 20 minutes of cooking time. Let turkey stand for 10 minutes before carving.
  2. Make the glaze: in a small saucepan combine glaze ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
