Recipe Servings

1 cup white wine or chicken broth
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper

1 (4 to 5-pound) fresh or frozen turkey breast, thawed


Combine all marinade ingredients in extra large plastic resealable food bag; add turkey breast. Tightly seal bag; turn bag several times to coat turkey well. Place bag into 13x9 inch pan. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 3 hours.

Heat one side of gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals to one side in charcoal grill. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite coals.

Remove turkey breast from marinade. Place marinade in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until marinade comes to a boil; boil 1 minute.

Place turkey breast onto grill over drip pan. Cover; grill, turning and basting occasionally with marinade, until internal temperature reaches 180°F. and turkey is no longer pink (2 to 2 1/2 hours). Discard remaining marinade.

*Substitute 4 teaspoons dried basil leaves.
