"One of the best turkey recipe I served with my family. This is very delicious, perfect for my Plainville Farms turkey. I make sure that my turkey is antibiotic-free and humanely-raised. Meat is flavorful, tender and juicy."

"I've been cooking turkey breasts for many years. This is the absolute best method I have EVER tasted! I have given this recipe to everyone I know and they love it! The moisture and the texture of the meat is phenominal! I used undiluted frozen apple juice in place of sherry."
