Apricot-Glazed Turkey Breast

Next time you need a special meal, give this wonderfully moist and tender turkey breast a try.

1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp pepper
1.2 tsp salt
1 bone-in turkey breast (5 lbs)

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Stir together the apricot preserves, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper.  Place the turkey breast on a rack in your favorite roasting pan.

Bake (uncovered) for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until meat thermometer reads 170 degrees.  Baste the turkey every 30 minutes with the apricot mixture.  Tent your turkey in foil if it browns too quickly.

Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
