Thanksgiving for 2: How to Make Orange-Honey Glazed Turkey Breast!

This delicious orange-honey glazed turkey breast is perfect for two at Thanksgiving – or anytime!

You'll need:

  • 1 2- to 3-pound bone-in, skin-on turkey breast
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Herbs de Provence

Glaze

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper

Here's how to make it:

  1. To make the glaze, combine the honey, orange zest, orange juice, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard and salt and pepper in a small pot. Boil gently, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. 
  2. Place a 2- to 3-pound bone-in, skin-on turkey breast in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, paprika and Herbs de Provence. 
  3. Cook at 375 degrees F until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, about 40 minutes, brushing often with the glaze after the first 30 minutes of baking. Allow turkey breast to rest a few minutes before slicing. 

Note: Herbs de Provence is a spice blend that usually includes basil, chervil, bay leaf, fennel, lavender, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, savory, sage, tarragon and thyme. You can find it on the spice aisle in most grocery stores.
