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.
