Quick and Easy Turkey Breast Thanksgiving Recipe 2009-11-23 20:56:49

Ingredients

  1. Two 2 3/4-pound boneless turkey breast halves with skin on
  2. One 2 1/4-pound bone-in turkey thigh
  3. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 tablespoon pepper
  7. 1 lemon, halved crosswise
  8. 1/2 cup chicken broth
  9. Store-bought cranberry sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400°. Arrange the turkey parts on a rimmed baking sheet, tucking the smaller end of each breast under to make an even thickness. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with the thyme, salt and pepper. Place the lemon halves, cut side down, in the pan. Roast until a meat thermometer inserted in each piece registers 155°, about 55 minutes.
  2. Transfer the turkey parts to a cutting board and tent loosely with foil; let stand for 20 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the chicken broth into the baking sheet, scraping up any browned bits. Pour into a microwaveable cup; skim the fat that rises to the surface. Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Serve the turkey pan sauce with the sliced turkey and cranberry sauce.

Serves 8.
