Turkey Breast Suggestions?

I've got a giant boneless turkey breast in my fridge and would love some recipe suggestions! I usually just put some spices and olive oil on it and cook it but that's kind fo boring.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking that a glaze would be nice but would love to hear your thoughts (or suggestions for how to glaze it!)

  1. I would slice/pound it into paillards, then salt and pepper, dip in flour, egg, fresh bread crumbs and fry until crispy. Serve with lemon and/or chutney of your choice.

    1. I agree with slicing and pounding. You can make turkey tetrazini or turkey parmagina.
      I also like grilling it and slathering bbq sauce on at the end.

      1. I marinate mine in soy sauce, seasame oil, lemon juice and thyme and then raost (broil first to crisp the skin if you like) and then serve it sliced at room temp with a cilantro-lime mayonaise

        1. I have made a boneless skinless turkey breast using Barefoot Contessa's Indonesian Ginger Chicken recipe. It works well.

          1. If the bone is too hard to cut through, slice down along the breastbone on one side to remove half of the whole breast. Roast the boneless piece or slice it into cutlets to bread and sautee.
            Slice some of the raw meat off the bone side, cube, and use for turkey stew, chili, or a la king.
            With the remaining meat-on-bone, make stock. Once that meat has poached to done-ness, you can remove some or all of it and freeze, using later for sandwiches or salads.
