How to Make the Juiciest Roast Turkey Breast

This roast turkey breast recipe is the answer to getting beautiful turkey meat without too much hassle. FULL RECIPE 👉


For Turkey
🔹 2.5 lbs bone-in turkey breast half (so 1/2 of a whole breast)
🔹 Kosher salt this is the one I use
🔹 1 tsp ground allspice
🔹 1 tsp paprika
🔹 1 tsp ground black pepper
🔹 ½ tsp nutmeg
🔹 1 head garlic about 14 cloves, peeled and minced
🔹 Large handful of chopped fresh parsley about 2 ounces
🔹 Extra virgin olive oil
🔹 7 to 8 small shallots peeled and halved
🔹 7 celery sticks cut into large pieces

For Grapes
🔹 1 lb seedless red grapes
🔹 Extra virgin olive oil
🔹 Kosher salt

🔹 Make sure your turkey thawed before cooking. It will typically take 1 day or so to thaw out in the fridge.
🔹 Salt the Turkey Breast First. Do not skip salting the turkey. If you have the time, salt and refrigerate the turkey uncovered for 2 hours or even overnight. But if you’re short on time, salt and leave it at room temprature for 30 minutes while you work on other things. I use low-sodium kosher salt which will do its work of tenderizing and flavoring the turkey. And if you do end up chilling it uncovered, the circulating air will dry up the skin some which will help it cook to a cripsy golden brown while the tukey breast stays nice and juicey.
🔹Let the cooked turkey breast rest before serving. When you take it out of the oven, it’s a good idea to cover the turkey loosley with some foil and leave it undisturbed for 15 minutes or so. This allows the juices to redistribute (you don’t see this part in the video, but I always do it).
🔹 The roasted grapes are optional. If you skip the grapes, still, heat the oven to 450 degrees F to start with and reduce the heat to 350 degrees F when you insert the turkey in the oven.
🔹 Storing leftovers. If you’ve roasted turkey breast to use for sandwiches for example, or if you have leftovers, you can refrigerate for later use. Store roast turkey breast in tight-lid glass containers and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
