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
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 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 ground ginger or 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 325°.
  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 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° 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.
