Grilled Turkey Breast Recipe

"I combined several recipes to come up with this entree that our family loves any time of year," shares Ravonda Mormann of Raleigh, North Carolina. After marinating overnight, the turkey is grilled, then dressed up with a fast fruity sauce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:20 servings


  • 2 boneless skinless turkey breast halves (about 2-1/2 pounds each)
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  • 1. Place turkey in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine the next five ingredients; pour over turkey. Seal and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill turkey, covered, over indirect heat for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 170°. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve with the turkey. Yield: 10 servings.
