Roasted Turkey Breast

Roasted Turkey Breast

Watch the video for this recipe:

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and everybody is searching for the best ideas for this special dinner. For all those who consider a whole turkey might be too much this roasted turkey breast might be a wonderful solution. It is really easy to prepare, takes no more than 10 minutes to make the marinade, and once roasted you will have a wonderful looking roasted turkey, moist and flavorful.


Love this marinade, as it allows the roasting of the turkey breast without the skin, and it still remains moist and delicious. Not to mention that is healthier this way as well. The use of mustard is definitely a winner for me and will use it in many marinades for either chicken or turkey.


This roasted turkey is suitable not only for holiday tables but for any other day as it is quick, and can be used in various recipes for the next days either for sandwiches, or use it for enchiladas, salads and so on.

Roasting a whole turkey, seems like a lot to me, especially if I'm the one who has to do it. But, this turkey breast recipe will be perfect!!! I like the way you marinated it and it is perfectly baked. Will try it next time I'm making turkey breast!

We just picked up a turkey breast for tomorrow's feast and I can't wait! I'll have to see if my mother in law will let me make this recipe! It looks fabulous, Ella!

That does look deliciously moist. I think I'm not going to cook another whole turkey. It's just the two of us and I end up sending turkey home with our guests. A breast would be plenty for us.

I never cooked a turkey breast before....only a whole turkey. But I had to work and couldn't be home in time to roast a whole turkey when we hosted my husbands 6-person team for a Christmas dinner. I was worried the breast only would be dry. But it was terrific!!!! Very juicy and tasty. Everyone had seconds and a +3kg turkey breast was gone. NB: I marinated mine overnight. Definitely a keeper!

I am so happy to hear that Jessica.. yes, marinating it overnight is best. Wish you and your family a  Happy New Year.
