Turkey Breast


Turkey contains tryptophan, an amino acid our bodies use to produce niacin (B3) and serotonin. Serotonin helps us feel calm, which in turn helps our bodies produce more melatonin, the sleep hormone! Long story short: turkey’s a great winding-down dinner. My favorite turkey recipe is in my cookbook, but if you’re in a rush and don’t have my balsamic marinade handy, this is a gourmet hack your whole family will love. If you’re really short on time, you can even skip the onions.


Prepare the Turkey Breast

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
2. Arrange onion slices on the bottom of a roasting pan or a 9×13-inch (23×33-centimeter) baking pan.
3. Season turkey on both sides with salt, lemon pepper, and herbs, if using. Drizzle with coconut aminos and orange juice.
4. Cover tightly; bake for two hours. Uncover; raise oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
5. Baste turkey well, then bake uncovered for half an hour or longer, until turkey has browned.
6. Allow to rest for about 30 minutes before slicing.


Don’t use skinless turkey for this recipe! You can use boneless turkey breast, but not turkey roast that comes with a net around it.
