Cranberry-Glazed Turkey Breast Recipe: Thanksgiving Turkey That's Ready in Under an Hour

If you're not having a big Thanksgiving dinner this year, instead of baking a big turkey, try this easy cranberry-glazed turkey breast recipe that'll feed just a few. This turkey breast will be on the table in about an hour. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes to 1 hour
Total Time: 55 minutes to 1 hour and 5 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


Cranberry Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the cranberry sauce, combine all the ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until cranberries start to burst, stirring often, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the herbs and mash until sauce is smooth. Set aside. 
  2. For the turkey breast, season it with salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Place it in a baking dish.
  3. Cover the turkey breast with the cranberry sauce. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Allow the turkey breast to rest for about 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with any leftover cranberry sauce.
