  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos for a gluten free option
  • 3 lbs turkey breast boneless, skinless


  • Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine salt, pepper, garlic, smoked paprika, orange juice and olive oil.
  • Marinate the turkey breast with the mixture for 30 minutes.
  • Place turkey breast in the roasting pan.
  • In another mixing bowl, combine the maple syrup, garlic paste, and soy sauce/coconut aminos. Whisk to combine thoroughly.
  • Pour mixture over turkey breast and roast at 400 degrees for 5 minutes to get a golden brown caramelized "crust" on the turkey.
  • Reduce heat to 325 degrees F.
  • Remove from oven, add 1 cup of chicken broth, and cover pan with foil.
  • Return to oven, and roast for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until internal temperature reads 165 degrees F, basting with juices/maple glaze every 20 minutes.
