EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Sometimes the only place you can find the size turkey breast you need is in the freezer section. The best way to thaw a frozen turkey breast is to place it in the refrigerator. Allow about 24 hours for the 2- to 2 1/2-pound turkey breast in this recipe. Forget to take the turkey out of the freezer in time to thaw in refrigerator? Use the cold-water thawing method by placing the tightly wrapped turkey breast in cold water. Allow 30 minutes per pound to thaw, and change the water often so it stays cold.

Kalamata olives are assertively flavored purple-black ripe olives soaked in a wine-vinegar marinade. They add a delightful flavor accent, but you also can use a drained 2 1/4-ounce can of sliced ripe olives instead.
