Cider Marinated Turkey Breast

I came up with this marinade from several different recipes. The brine gives the turkey a great flavor and it always comes out moist and yummy. You could also use a whole turkey as well. Whenever I make it I always get requests for the recipe. It even passed the "Mom test"; she says it's better than hers.

    Made this exactly by the recipe and it turned out great. The turkey was moist and very flavorful. It was very easy, very simple, and made a great Sunday lunch with meat left over for sandwiches tonight - I've just eaten one. I will definately be making this again. Khandi
