Ingredients

  • 1 Turkey Breast Roast (3 lb approx)
  • leaves Cilantro to garnish (optional)

Chipotle Marinade:

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 Chili Chipotle Adobo + 1 tablespoon of the sauce
  • 1 tablespoon granulated chicken bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Instructions

  • Place all marinade ingredients in a mini food processor or blender. Cover and process until smooth. Pour marinade into a large Ziploc bag. Add the turkey breast, close the bag and shake to combine. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour up to overnight.
  • Remove the turkey from marinade 1 hour before roasting. Strain the marinade and transfer to a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until sauce becomes thick, about 8 -10 minutes, or until it reaches your desired consistency. Remove from heat and reserve.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil to easy cleaning.
  • Bake the turkey to an internal temperature of 165º F, brushing the turkey with the sauce during the cooking process, for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Once it’s done, cover with aluminum foil and let it stand for about 10 -15 minutes before cutting.
  • Serve with the remaining chipotle sauce.

Notes

STORE: Refrigerate leftovers in a airtight container and  for up to 3 days.
 
CAN I USE A WHOLE TURKEY BREAST INSTEAD?
Yes, you can! If you decide to use a whole turkey breast plan ahead because it need to be completely thaw. Follow the same steps: marinade the night before and remove from the marinade 1 hour before roasting.
  • Bone-In Turkey Breast: cook at 400°F or until the thickest part of the meat registers 160° F, about 15-20 minutes per pound.  If the top start to brown too much cover with a piece of foil. Once it’s done, cover with aluminum foil and let it stand for about 10 -15 minutes before cutting.
  • Boneless Turkey Breast: cook at 400°F or until the thickest part of the meat registers 160° F, about 12-15 minutes per pound.  If the top start to brown too much cover with a piece of foil. Once it’s done, cover with aluminum foil and let it stand for about 10 -15 minutes before cutting.
