Recipe for one skillet turkey and cranberry.

Preparing One Skillet Turkey With Cranberry Sauce

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Mix together the butter, thyme, rosemary, sage, garlic powder, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Dry off the turkey breast using paper towels. Use your hands to coat both sides of the turkey with the herb mixture, getting some underneath the skin as well.

Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium/high heat. Once you have the skillet extremely hot, add the turkey breast to the skillet skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the skin starts to brown. Turn the turkey over and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove the turkey from the skillet and set aside on a plate.

Add the wine to the hot skillet and whisk it in with the residual pan drippings. Make sure to scrape off any browned bits off the bottom of the pan – that’s where all the flavor is!

Add in the cranberries, lemon juice, brown swerve and vinegar and stir to combine. Cook the berries for 2-3 minutes until just beginning to bubble. Place the turkey breast into the cranberry sauce and spoon some of the liquid over the top.

Now place the skillet in the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes. You’ll want to baste the turkey breast with some cranberry liquid 2 or 3 times throughout the cooking process. Cook until the internal temperature of the turkey reads 160 degrees. The turkey will continue to cook to 165 degrees when you take it out of the oven and let it rest.

Take the skillet out of the oven and let the turkey rest for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
