Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

In Mexico my country of origin depending from which region you are from is the Christmas dinner tradition that the family follows. My family was from Chihuahua a state located in the north of the Mexican Republic and very close from the border to Texas.  I remember many of the groceries my family purchased were from El Paso, TX which was very close from our town so I grew up enjoying a lot of the American Southern traditions like corn bread, cranberry sauce, turkey and gravy.  Our Christmas dinner menu also embraced other cultures so we were used to have favorites like Bacalao a la Vizcaina (cod fish stew) prepared to honor our Spaniard heritage, Romeritos with mole and shrimp cakes to honor our indigenous roots and for dessert we were used to have Spanish turrones or nougat and Lebanese date and nut bars. Indeed a vast variety of foods that celebrated who we are and from where our ancestors were from. Nowadays I live in Florida and got married to a Cuban so my traditions have changed a bit because of this merge nevertheless the desire to embrace my culture and traditions it is still prevalent so every year aside from eating lechon and congri  we also enjoy oven roasted turkey breast during Christmas time but prepared with different condiments so that it is a welcomed treat for such a special family gathering and that is why today I want to share with you how I prepare a juicy oven roasted turkey breast, so let’s cook!

How to prepare an oven roasted turkey breast

How to prepare an oven roasted turkey breast

Preparation time: 3 hours (though you might want to brine the turkey in vinegar, bay leaves, oregano and salt a day in advance for moist). Serves 6-8 guests. The approximate cost per person is less than $1.50 depending on the ingredients cost at your local supermarket. You will need measuring spoons, a mixing bowl, a spoon, a large oven bag, a thermometer, and a roasting pan or a Pyrex.

Take the turkey out of the brine and place it  inside a large oven bag and then rest it on a roasting pan or a Pyrex.  Then with your hands separate the skin from the meat and make a pocket. In that pocket place one of the compound butter with garlic and press with your fingers to make sure the breast is covered inside. Do the same thing with the other side of the breast.  For the glaze combine all the ingredients of the list in a mixing bowl and combine well using a spoon. With that same spoon cover the turkey breast making sure you do it evenly. When done sprinkle some of the rotisserie chicken condiment on top to create a savory crust when cooking in the oven. Before closing the oven bag pour on the side one cup of white wine this will help the turkey stay moist. Then close the bag following the instructions of the package and cook your turkey breast for 2.5 hours at a 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The oven roasted turkey breast will be ready when reaching an internal temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Take it out of the oven and let it rest for few minutes before slicing. Remove the bag carefully and place it in a nice serving plate.

      Hola Silvia en efecto es muy sencillo hacer esta pechuga de pavo si quieres hacer un pavo entero solo hay que comprar la bolsa de hornear extra grande y marinar el pavo un dia antes asi como inyectarlo con vino antes de hornear para que quede jugoso, muchas gracias por tu visita!
