For the holidays Turkey is a staple at our house for sure. It is the star of the table, centered around a million other dishes because more and more we keep coming up with new recipes and sides that make our holiday feast a great one. All this menu planning is fun and exciting as we think of the big day but the cooking can be a bit chaotic if we do not plan well. A huge time saving tip for me is to leave the turkey to the experts and I am not talking about my mom, aunt or grandma. I am talking about JENNIE-O®. Their oven ready Turkeys are amazing! They come seasoned and no thawing is required. Just place the baking bag directly into the oven. For this recipe I used their OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast which you can find at your local Tops Friendly Markets.
This recipe is the most flavorful way I have ever dressed a Turkey (I did the sauce, Jennie-O did the rest). This package comes with a gravy pouch which I saved for the mashed potatoes but I did wanted to create a glaze for the Turkey just for that extra holiday touch. It is really simple, check it out!
This is the baking bag you will keep the Turkey on to go in the oven. Just cut three 1/2 inch slits on top of the bag and that’s it.
Actually all the simple instructions and tips are listed in the back of the bag including baking time.
I took the Turkey out 15 minutes before it was instructed in the bag, I covered it with the glaze and placed it back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
And this is how pretty it turns.
- 1 Jennie-O Boneless Oven Ready Turkey Breast
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- ½ teaspoon all spice, ground
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Place Jennie-O turkey breast in the oven and cook following its package directions
- While turkey is in the oven, combine the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan and let it reduce by half over medium high heat.
- Remove the turkey breast 15 minutes before the final cooking time.
- Cover the turkey with ½ of the sauce and take back to the oven for 15 more minutes to complete the suggested cooking time.
- Keep the other ½ of the sauce reducing until it becomes a thick glaze.
- Once the last 15 minutes have passed cover the turkey breast with they thick glaze and enjoy as is or broil it for 2 minutes if you like the glaze to be caramelized.
