Ingredients

1 whole skinless turkey breast, with ribs (about 4 pounds)

1 package Lipton’s dry onion soup mix

½ cup orange juice

½ cup onions, diced


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Remove the skin from the turkey breast. Place in a roasting pan or 13×9 inch baking pan, breast side up.

2. In a medium bowl mix together the cranberry sauce, dry soup mix, orange juice and onions. Pour sauce all over turkey breast.

Shopping Tips

Most supermarkets sell bone-in turkey breast. They vary a little in weight but you should be able to found one about 4 pounds. If not, ask the store butcher for help.

Trader Joe’s sells the most delicious containers of fresh cranberry sauce.  They only sell it in Oct-December.  I like to buy several containers and store them in the freezer.  They’ll last for over 6 months. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
