Marinated Turkey Breast


My family calls this delicious recipe PEPPER TURKEY. It is by far one of my family's very favorite Main Dishes and we have it for a lot of special occasions.  Faith,  Josh and Grace all love the gravy that this recipe makes and it is delicious on pretty much anything!  We love it over rice and dinner rolls, but we also love it on cooked broccoli!  YUM!

Note:  You may question the amounts of salt and pepper that this recipe calls for, but they are correct!  It is TABLESPOONS!



5 - 7 pound turkey breast
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons black pepper
1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Place turkey breast inside a browning bag and place in a shallow roasting pan.


Mix together oil, salt, pepper and vinegar.


Add chopped parsley to oil mixture and mix well.



Pour marinade over breast and seal bag.


Cut 5-6 slits in top of cooking bag.


Bake at 300 degrees for approximately 3 hours or until meat thermometer inserted in center of breast reaches 180 degrees.




**  This recipe can also be prepared ahead of time and marinated overnight.


Serves: 10-12

I've never attempted to cook a turkey breast, but I think I've just been inspired. Thanks for the recipe.

I guess i need to add a turkey breast to my shopping list. That looks awesome, we need a break from chicken every once in a while. I'll definitely be trying this one!

You have soooo many delicious recipes, I wasn't sure which to post a comment under. This turkey breast looks wonderful and I'm thinking this may be what I make for Thanksgiving since it will be just the three of us. Thanks for posting all your recipes! :)
