Ingredients

  • 2 boneless turkey breasts (about 1-1/2 lb/675 g each)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1/4 cup red pepper jelly
Shallot Wine Jus:
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Sprinkle turkey with sage, salt and pepper. Gently press flesh sides together; tie with string. Spread butter over skin. Roast on greased rack in roasting pan in 325°F (160°C) oven for 1 hour.

In small saucepan, melt red pepper jelly over low heat; brush over turkey. Roast until meat thermometer registers 185°F (85°C) and juices run clear when turkey is pierced, about 30 minutes.

Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes before thinly slicing.

Shallot Wine Jus: Meanwhile, skim any fat from pan juices. Place pan over medium heat. Add shallots; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add 3/4 cup of the broth and wine; bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes.

Whisk together cornstarch, salt, pepper and remaining broth; whisk into pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Strain if desired; serve with turkey.
