Roast Turkey Breast with
Yam and Pineapple Relish

Recipe Ingredients




  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Rinse breasts and pat dry. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Place skin side up in baking dish. Pour pineapple juice and broth around breasts.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until thermometer reaches 160 degrees F.
  4. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. (The meat will continue cooking, and the temperature will rise to 170 or 175 degrees F. If the turkey has a popper in it, it should pop up while the turkey rests.)
  5. Meanwhile, make relish: Drain pineapple, reserving juice.
  6. In a large skillet, over medium heat, add yams, 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice, ginger, and sugar. Stir in cranberries. Cook, stirring, until berries begin to pop, about 3 minutes. Stir in pineapple chunks.
  7. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
  8. Remove turkey from pan and slice thinly.
  9. Serve with relish.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
