This flavorful turkey breast is compact and delicious, perfect for a small family. Or roast this turkey breast for the great sandwiches and leftovers you’ll have for a few days.


  • 1 (5 to 7-pound) bone-in turkey breast
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the Orange Glaze

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) orange juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons sweet orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger, or 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger


  1. Gather the ingredients and preheat the oven to 325 F.

  2. Rub turkey breast lightly with vegetable oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the turkey on a rack in a roasting pan.

  3. Roast for about 2 to 3 1/4 hours, depending on the size of the turkey breast (stuffed will take longer). The cooking time guide should be on the turkey breast packaging. A meat thermometer will reach 170 F when the turkey is done. If necessary, tent with a piece of buttered or oiled foil during the last hour.

  4. Meanwhile, make the glaze. Combine the glaze ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

  5. Baste the turkey breast with the orange glaze a few times during the last 20 minutes of cooking time. Let turkey stand for 10 minutes before carving.

  6. Serve and enjoy.
