This is a great way to prepare turkey for small gatherings.

- 1 (8 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple chunks, juice reserved
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup dry red wine

- Place the turkey breast, skin side up, in a 13 x 9 baking pan.
- Sprinkle with the thyme and rosemary.
- Roast, uncovered, for about 25 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, drain off and discard any fats and juices.
- Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.

- Pour over and around turkey.

Made this tonight after apple cider brining the Turkey breast. My husband was asking me to make it again after just 2 bites. I think this would also be great with a pork loin. Thanks for posting this recipe!
Made this on the spur of the moment tonight so all my ingredients were not on hand. I had no bell pepper(didn't miss it), my dried fruit consisted of raisens, craisens, dried cherries(will make sure to have the other assortment on hand next time). My turkey breast was boneless & skinless so I watched it closely during that initial high heat period. But it was an awesome recipe that we will use again and again. I even got a great picture of the meal to post when I get the camera connected to the computer again.
Wow! I had never made just a turkey breast before. But I was getting tired of all the leftover turkey as the kids left. This recipe was just the right blend of meat, fruit and veggies. It was wonderful! I served it with Lundberg's rice, the dark blend. YUMMY!My husband loved it and so did our daughter. Thanks, I will make this again!
