Apricot-Glazed Turkey Breast


  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (5 to 6 pounds)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sliced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sugar apricot preserves
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce


  • 1. With fingers, carefully loosen skin from turkey breast. With a sharp knife, cut ten 2-in.-long slits in meat under the skin; insert a garlic clove slice and a ginger slice into each slit.
  • 2. Place turkey in a large bowl; pour 1/4 cup wine under the skin. Secure skin to underside of breast with toothpicks. Pour remaining wine over turkey. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine the preserves, mustard and soy sauce; set aside. Drain and discard marinade; place turkey on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan.
  • 4. Bake at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 170°, basting with apricot mixture every 30 minutes (cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly). Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.
