    Mikekey's Note:

    A spicy marinade for turkey breast. Madras curry powder is a hot version. The turkey breast is NOT a formed roast, but a whole, boned breast with skin on. VARIATION: use marinade on whole chicken and grill chicken on spit. Cooking time includes 8 hours marinating time. Serve hot, or refrigerate and slice for sandwiches or salads.

      This is an outstanding marinade! Made it for DH who is not a turkey breast lover, and he told me to rate it with 5 stars and make it again soon. The meat remains so wonderfully juicy, not drying out at all. I used hot madras curry and will try it with mild curry, too. This definitely is a new keeper. Thanks for posting!
      Made for Holiday Tag.

      This is a great recipe! The marinade is spicy but not overly so and is perfect with the turkey. We grilled ours and the flavor was outstanding - thanks for sharing the recipe!
