Reviews for Golden Apricot-Glazed Turkey Breast
"This is a WONDERFUL recipe! I have made it several times. I have used 1/2 red raspberry jam and all red raspberry jam before and was also very tasty."
"We have made this using chicken thighs too. Very good."
"This is absolutely awesome! I found it helpful to heat the preserves in the microwave before stirring in the balsamic vinegar."
"Tender, juicy, and totally yummy. We had this tonight for Thanksgiving dinner. I stuffed the cavity of the turkey with two oranges cut in half. Squeezed each half a bit into the cavity before I stuffed it in. The drippings with some red wine, sage, and the leftover basting sauce (about 1/4 cup), plus a few tablespoons of apricot preserves, made a wonderful gravy! This is a definite keeper. I made this using a whole turkey (11 pounds), and the final presentation was so rustic and savory. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!"
