Apricot-Bourbon Glazed Turkey Breast

8 servings


  • 4 1/2 pounds bone-in turkey breast
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a shallow roasting pan fitted with a rack, place the turkey breast on the rack. Roast the turkey for approximately 20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature as registered on a meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees F.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the jam, bourbon, orange juice, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes. Baste the turkey with the mixture a 1/2 hour before the turkey is done.

Allow the turkey to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving.
