  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. On rack in large shallow roasting pan, place turkey breast, skin side up. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of breast and does not touch bone.
  • 2
    Roast uncovered 30 minutes.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Brush one-third of apple juice mixture over turkey.
  • 4
    Roast 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes longer, brushing generously with apple juice mixture every 30 minutes, until thermometer reads at least 165°F. Cover with foil; let stand 15 minutes for easiest carving.

Expert Tips

  • Turkey breast is a lean protein that supplies amino acids that give structure to the body in skin, cell membranes and muscles.
  • The resting time after roasting allows the meat to firm up, so it’s easier to carve into smooth, uniform slices.
  • Nutrition for this recipe was calculated without the skin. By not eating the turkey skin, you've avoided an additional 60 calories and 7g of total fat!
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient source can change.
