Turkey Breast Recipes
Ancho-Rubbed Turkey Breast with Vegetables
To enhance turkey's flavor and moistness, and to create an exceptionally crisp skin, F&W's Justin Chapple rubs the bird with a salt, sugar and spice mix before roasting.
Turkey Breast with Ginger-Scallion Sauce
David Chang recommends poaching turkey breast in leftover turkey stock before serving it with ginger-scallion sauce, based on his favorite condiment at Great N.Y. Noodletown in Chinatown.
Pimentón-Roasted Whole Turkey Breast with Chorizo
A faster and incredibly moist Thanksgiving alternative, this Spanish-inspired turkey breast with chorizo and pimenton is full of smoky heat and flavor.
Mango-Glazed Turkey Breast
Serve this sweet and spicy turkey with a bright, crisp rosé.
Ancho-Scallion Roast Turkey Breast
Toasted ancho chiles, garlic and scallions flavor the butter that's rubbed all over the turkey breast and bastes it as it roasts.
Indian-Spiced Turkey Breast
Roasting a whole turkey is always tricky, since the breast can dry out while the dark meat finishes cooking. To get around that problem, Melissa Rubel Jacobson roasts turkey breast by itself. With the right amount of cooking, it's always juicy, especially when marinated in a combination of lemon and yogurt.
Turkey Shwarma with Cabbage Salad
Think of this sandwich as a Middle Eastern taco. 2012 F&W Best New Chef Jenn Louis, of Ray restaurant in Portland, Oregon, wraps a soft lavash flatbread around thinly sliced oven-roasted turkey breast (no vertical spit needed) and crunchy Israeli cabbage salad. It gets great flavor from lettuce zhug (based on the fiery Yemeni herb condiment), spiced shawarma oil and tangy dill pickles.
