Turkey breasts are the ultimate shortcut for getting the turkey flavour you love in a fraction of the time.


  • 750 g skin-on, boneless turkey breast

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 4 slices bacon, coarsely chopped

  • 3 gala apples, coarsely diced

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup water or orange juice, optional


  • PREHEAT oven to 400F. Set a rack on a 9 × 13-in. baking pan. Sprinkle both sides of turkey with salt and fresh pepper. Lay turkey, skin-side up, on rack. Scatter bacon, apples and cranberries on pan around turkey.

  • ROAST in centre of oven until skin turns golden-brown and a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of turkey reads 170F, 40 to 45 min. Transfer turkey to a cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 min.

  • REMOVE rack and stir brown sugar into bacon mixture until dissolved. Add 1/4 cup water if there aren’t any pan juices. Spoon into a serving bowl. Slice turkey and serve with chutney.
