Orange-Herb Roasted Turkey!
How about to celebrate the holidays with a delicious citrus and herb flavoured turkey recipe from Shaklee naturally!
1 whole bone-in turkey breast, 6 1/2 to 7 pounds, thawed
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
1 Tbsp rosemary leaves, finely chopped
1 Tbsp thyme leaves, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
1 navel orange
1/2 medium red onion, cut into wedges
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Put turkey breast, skin-side up in a heavy roasting pan or baking dish, preferably on a rack.
Mix garlic, salt, pepper, all herbs, lemon zest in olive oil to form a paste. Marinade the turkey with this paste for at least 30 minutes. Ensure that you cover the skin under the breast as well. Pour the orange juice, lemon juice, and chicken broth into the bottom of the roasting pan. Scatter onion and orange slices around the pan.
Roast the turkey for 1.5 to 2 hours, until the skin is golden brown and an internal thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest part of the breast. If, while it roasts, you notice the turkey is browned more than you’d like, cover the turkey loosely with aluminum foil and continue to roast until done.
When the turkey is done, remove from the oven, cover with aluminum foil, and allow it to stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Slice the turkey and serve.
Can be served with sweet potatoes or anything else you like.
Honey-Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes
4 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp honey ( or less as you wish )
1/2 Tsp cinnamon powder ( It may be less to your taste )
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 375F. Toss the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, honey and ground cinnamon. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the sweet potatoes evenly in a single layer. Roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until tender. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a serving platter and enjoy.
