If you love juicy and flavorful roasted turkey with a warm fruit compote dribbled on top, this has got to be one of the easiest and most delicious paleo turkey meals ever!
This recipe serves 2-3 people using a 2.5 lb bone-in turkey breast. If you’ve got a few more turkey lovers to feed, just choose a larger size and cook it a little longer.
This one is a real favorite of mine whenever I’m craving turkey. I slide it into the oven and whip up the compote at least a couple of times a year for the Hubs and I. It’s that easy!
Need to prepare an intimate Thanksgiving dinner for two? This is your recipe.
Got the whole family landing on your dinner table for the holidays? Maybe go with a whole bird instead and just make the apple-cranberry compote as a side. It only takes about 30 minutes to whip up! You’ll get about 2-1/2 cups out of this recipe – so you’ll want to at least double the ingredients to keep your whole family happy.
As far as cooking tips, this one’s pretty much foolproof as-is. No special skills or ninja tricks needed to pull this one off.
My only advice would be to set your turkey breast on a wire rack in your roasting tray – it’ll give your turkey a nice top-to-bottom golden brown. And of course, loosely tent the turkey breast with aluminum foil if it starts getting a little toasty on top.
The compote is even easier…bring it to a boil, back it off to a simmer, stir occasionally, cool, serve. Nothing complicated about that!
Give this easy paleo turkey entrée and fruity compote a try the next time you’re craving roasted turkey – no need to wait for Thanksgiving to dig into this one!
