I have a daughter that doesn't like turkey. The first time she had this turkey breast, she had seconds....it's that good!!! My whole family LOVES it. I have to make this every Thanksgiving as well as the traditional turkey. I usually make three breasts for our family of 12.

How to Make Cuban Turkey Breast

Step-by-Step

  1. Put all ingredients (except turkey & bacon) in a blender or food processor and blend well.
  2. Marinate turkey breast(s) , in this mixture overnight (in the refrigerator) I use a deep bowl so the breast(s)are covered. * Nets on the breasts should remain during marinating and baking steps to hold breasts together.
  3. Place marinated turkey breast(s) along with the marinade in a baking dish. Place thick sliced bacon over breast(s) before baking to prevent burning. The bacon also adds flavor to the sauce.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in preheated 325 degree oven. How long will depend on the size of the breast(s). Anywhere from 1 1/2 -3 hrs. I always use a meat thermometer to test...it should read 165 degrees.
  5. When turkey breast(s) is done, remove nets and place marinade in a saucepan, bring to a boil for several minutes and then simmer for 1 hour to reduce. This can be served with the sliced breast(s).
