  • Makes: 4 servings
  • Cooking Time: 25-30 minutes in a convection oven, 40-45 minutes in a standard oven

Ingredients

1-1 1/4 lbs. boneless turkey breast with skin, aka turkey London broil
Stuffing
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup plus 2 tbsp no-salt-added chicken or vegetable stock (divided use)
2 cups chopped mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 cups packed baby spinach leaves
2 Tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes (not in oil), chopped
1 tsp. grated orange zest
1/4 cup fresh basil
freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. In sauté pan combine olive oil, onion, and stock. Cook, stirring over low heat, until onion is tender. This will take about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring until tender and moisture has evaporated, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cook about 1 minute. Stir in spinach and cook, stirring until wilted, about 1 minute.
  4. Add sun-dried tomatoes, orange zest, basil, and a grinding of fresh black pepper. Remove from heat. Cool.
  5. Stuff mixture under the skin of turkey breast. Place in roasting pan and pour 1 cup additional stock or wine over turkey breast. Refrigerate until ready to roast.
  6. Roast in a 375ºF convection oven (25-30 minutes) or a 400ºF standard oven (40-45 minutes) until internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Can be basted with pan juices during roasting. Remove skin before serving.

Cook's tips: Slice like a London broil so that you get layers of turkey, stuffing, and golden brown skin.
