For when you don’t want to prep the whole bird, make this oven-roasted turkey breast recipe your go-to. Glazed with a sweet cranberry-orange sauce, it will impress every time.

Ingredients

1
cup cranberry juice cocktail
1/3
to 1/2 cup orange marmalade
2
tablespoons honey
1/3
cup butter
1
teaspoon salt
1
whole turkey breast (4 1/2 to 5 lb)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Line roasting pan with foil; spray rack with cooking spray.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, heat cranberry juice to boiling. Cook 10 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in marmalade, honey, butter and salt. Cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until butter is melted.
  • 3 Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in pan. Brush turkey with half of the glaze. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of breast and does not touch bone. Cover turkey loosely with foil.
  • 4 Bake 1 hour. Uncover; brush with glaze. Bake 1 hour 45 minutes longer, basting with remaining glaze every 30 minutes, until thermometer reads 165°F. (Cover loosely with foil during last 30 minutes of baking if necessary to prevent excessive browning.) Let stand 10 minutes before carving.
Tips  

For a festive presentation, adorn the serving platter with an assortment of mandarin oranges, cranberries and fresh bay leaves.
