I adapted this delious moist turkey breast from a recipe called Mimi's Sticky Chicken. She used a whole chicken, and I decided to try it out with a whole bone-in turkey breast. The rub is fantastic, and the turkey turned very moist and delicious. Make sure you make a rich turkey stock with the leftover carcass and skin. The one day prep time includes the overnight marinading.
