Want a wonderful smelling house? Try this one out! Turkey dinner is the favorite at our house and we all like white meat the best. This recipe is so great and the juices make a superb gravy. This comes from '00 Taste of Home. I highly recommend it. The serving size and cooking time would really depend on what size turkey breast you are cooking. Please adjust accordingly.

- 1 whole bone-in turkey breast (5 1/2-6lbs.)
- In a small saucepan,combine all the ingredients (except turkey) and bring to a boil.
- Remove from heat.
- Place turkey in shallow roasting pan.

- Bake uncovered at 325 degrees or until meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees.

Really a nice recipe. I used fresh lemon juice, and I think that makes all the difference in the world. Thanks for the recipe!
This is the 2nd time I am using this recipe. Although, I am slightly changing it this time. The first time I did not change the recipe at all and it was fantastic. But I wanted a twist this time and I added a bit of honey and some fresh squeezed lime and orange juice with all the other ingredients. It's so good either way. You can't go wrong with this recipe...thanks!
I love roasted turkey breast and this turned out well for me. I did as another reviewer suggested and lifted the skin and rubbed the basting sauce underneath. I think that is key to getting
maximum flavor in the meat. The skin was browned and crispy. Leftovers made bangin' sandwiches. Thanks for posting.
