Reviews forTeriyaki Turkey Breast
"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."
"The flavor is amazing!"
