Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours, 15 minutes


  • 1 turkey breast, bone-in, about 5 to 7 pounds
  • vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper
  • -
  • Glaze
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces orange juice concentrate (about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger or 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger


Heat oven to 325°.

Rub turkey breast lightly with vegetable oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast for about 2 to 3 1/4 hours, depending on size of the turkey breast (stuffed will take longer). The cooking time guide should be on the turkey breast packaging. A meat thermometer will reach 170° when the turkey is done. If necessary, tent with a piece of buttered or oiled foil during the last hour. Baste with glaze (below) a few times the last 20 minutes of cooking time. Let turkey stand for 10 minutes before carving.

Glaze: In a small saucepan combine glaze ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
