I make this throughout the year, but always use cider instead of apple juice in the fall. Recipe came from "Mr Food Cooks Like Mama". I usually cut back a tad on the soy sauce and I don't always thicken the juice with cornstarch. It's a nice twist to just baking a turkey breast. Servings is estimated. Cook time is rounded off. Hope you enjoy!

- 1 1⁄2 cups apple cider or 1 1⁄2 cups juice
