JENNIE-O® Tender & Juicy Young Turkey Breast (4 1⁄2 – 5 pounds), thawed if frozen, split into 2 halves
Spicy Gremolata; recipe follows
2 tablespoons olive oil
Spicy Gremolata
1½ cups packed flat leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
¼ cup sage leaves, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, smashed
3 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons kosher salt
½ cup olive oil


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. Loosen turkey skin. Rub half of the Spicy Gremolata under the skin of turkey breast halves.

  3. In large heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Sear each breast half 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides.

  4. Place seared turkey on large, rimmed baking sheet. Roast 30 to 60 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F.

  5. Remove turkey from oven. Rub turkey breasts with remaining Spicy Gremolata. Let stand 15 minutes for easier carving.

For the Spicy Gremolata

  1. In medium bowl, combine parsley, sage, garlic, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and kosher salt. Mix to combine. Stir in olive oil.
