Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Place turkey breast, skin side up, in shallow roasting pan.
  • 2 In mini food processor, place garlic and jalapeño. Cover; process until finely chopped. Add chili powder, salt, pepper, oil, 2 tablespoons of the tequila and 2 tablespoons of the lime juice. Cover; process, using on-and-off pulses, until smooth.
  • 3 Loosen turkey skin, using fingers or spoon; rub garlic mixture under and over turkey skin. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of breast and does not touch bone.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you don’t have a mini food processor, finely chop the garlic and jalapeño, then mix with a spoon in a small bowl with the oil, tequila and seasonings.

If the turkey skin becomes too dark while roasting, cover loosely with foil.

If you have an instant-read thermometer, you can use that to check the turkey’s doneness toward the end of roasting time rather than inserting an ovenproof thermometer before putting the turkey in the oven.
