Cranberry-Glazed Turkey Breast

Entrees, Holiday Recipes.
When Anne Lindsay first cooked a whole turkey breast for her family, they were all amazed at how tender and juicy it was. This recipe is now a family favorite. It's extremely easy and great for Sunday dinners, Thanksgiving or Christmas when you don't want to cook a whole turkey.
