For a great no-fail sweet-and-sour recipe, I guarantee you will turn to this festive roast. The recipe works well with chicken and chicken breast, too.

Turkey Roast Ingredients
Prepare the Turkey Breast
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Place the turkey breast in a 9x13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with salt, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder (or minced garlic).
In a small bowl, combine the jelly, brown sugar, ketchup, and mustard. Smear all over the roast. Top with french-fried onions.
Pour the apple juice and cranberry juice into the bottom of the pan. Cover and bake for one hour.
After one hour, baste the roast every 15 minutes for the next half hour, or longer if needed. The roast is ready when the juices run clear, not pink, or when the internal temperature reaches 175°F (79°C) on a meat thermometer.
