Peg Bigley's Amazing Marinated Turkey Breast

Two Boneless Turkey Breasts 

I got so many requests for the recipe when I posted this gorgeous shot, so here it is!  This is a great buffet, summer holiday or winter holiday menu item!  It is served cold, it's delicious and juicy and the sauce is so good you want to eat it by itself!  

Ingedients (for one Turkey Breast)

One 3 1/2 to 4 pound boneless turkey breast (you may have to order this from your favorite poultry farmer).  If you are cooking for a crowd and use two breasts, simply double the ingredients.

For the Marinade

1/2 cup of dry white wine
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of sesame oil
3 tablespoons of lemon juice - fresh please
1 teaspoon of dried thyme

For the Sauce

2 1/2 cups of goodmayonnaise
5 tablespoons lime juice - fresh please
2 1/2 tablespoons seeded, chopped jalepeno 
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 - 4 cloves of minced garlic
2 1/2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
3 cups of fresh corriander (cilantro) chopped fin


Mix the marinade contents together and put the marinade and the breast into a large ziplock bag.  Marinate overnight.

Remove the breast from the bag, dispose of the marinade and put the turkey into a large roasting pan
Put the turkey under the broiler until the top is nice and brown - stay with it!

After browning the breast, bake it at 350 degrees for about 50 - 60 minutes

While the breast is in the oven. make the sauce by mixing together all of the sauce ingredients.  

When the turkey is done, refrigerate it and serve it cold.

Note:  You can either slice the turkey or for a buffet and ease of eating, you can cut it into chunks and have toothpicks at the ready. Have plenty of the dipping sauce out - it is always a big hit!
