Directions

  1. Stir whiskey, molasses, and brown sugar in a saucepan until brown sugar has dissolved. Place over medium heat, bring to a simmer, and turn off heat; stir salt and hot pepper sauce into mixture. Pour marinade into a large bowl.
  2. Place turkey breast into the marinade with skin side down; let stand for 1 hour, turning turkey breast over occasionally. Transfer turkey to a roasting pan. Retain marinade for basting.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  4. Roast turkey breast in the preheated oven until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 45 minutes. Baste turkey occasionally with retained marinade. Allow turkey breast to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

I love all these ingredients individually, so this was a fun recipe to make. I did two things differently, however, out of need. I couldn't find blackstrap molasses at one store, so I used the Grandma's Original Molasses which has more sugar in it. Because of that, I cooked my 2.5 lb bone-in turkey breast at 425 so it wouldn't burn. It took an hour for it to get done. I had almost a cup of the marinade left, so I do think it would be possible to get by with less of that (don't want to waste my Jack Daniel's)--even half the amount. I'll find some useful way to use up the marinade! The marinade gets all nice and carmelized in the bottom of the pan from the basting process. I would make this again, but not for Thanksgiving unless it accompanied a traditional turkey! Thanks for the recipe, 360!

Wow doesn't cover it. This had such a fantastic flavor. I couldn't find the smaller breast at any of my local stores, so I went ahead and got an 8lb. breast. I didnt change the proportions of the marinade/glaze, but I lowered the oven to 325. I'm planning to try this on the grill with chicken this summer.

Delicious and moist. Perfect combination of whiskey and sweet, and I don't even like drinking whiskey! Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try with it with chicken next time.
