I love all these ingredients individually, so this was a fun recipe to make. I did two things differently, however, out of need. I couldn't find blackstrap molasses at one store, so I used the Grandma's Original Molasses which has more sugar in it. Because of that, I cooked my 2.5 lb bone-in turkey breast at 425 so it wouldn't burn. It took an hour for it to get done. I had almost a cup of the marinade left, so I do think it would be possible to get by with less of that (don't want to waste my Jack Daniel's)--even half the amount. I'll find some useful way to use up the marinade! The marinade gets all nice and carmelized in the bottom of the pan from the basting process. I would make this again, but not for Thanksgiving unless it accompanied a traditional turkey! Thanks for the recipe, 360!
I followed instructions, except our turkey breast was 5#.. I stuck with the initial amount of marinade. We used a thermometer that was left in during roasting. Considering our turkey breast was 2.5x the weight of the recipe, I thought I'd follow another reviewer and begin with 450 degrees, then pop it down to 375 after 20 minutes, and then take it out when the thermometer said 160. Well, a little bit over an hour after it went in, it said 160. I had basted 3 times. The skin was like leather. I had an awful time trying to carve the turkey breast, which was on the bone, and the meat was dry. Very dry. I'm not sure what happened here, but I didn't like it. We ate one serving and threw the leftovers away. A waste of good bourbon. I'm sorry to say, but this recipe did not work out here, nor was much flavor imparted to the meat from the marinade.
Wow doesn't cover it. This had such a fantastic flavor. I couldn't find the smaller breast at any of my local stores, so I went ahead and got an 8lb. breast. I didnt change the proportions of the marinade/glaze, but I lowered the oven to 325. I'm planning to try this on the grill with chicken this summer.
Delicious and moist. Perfect combination of whiskey and sweet, and I don't even like drinking whiskey! Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try with it with chicken next time.
This is great! I had a 9 lb. bone in turkey breast that I cooked in an electric roaster. I would cut down the alcohol by half and thicken the marinade next time. I used the leftovers in another recipe from this sight - "Dad 's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie" and it was delicious
My family loved this. I also used Grandmas original molasses, also I used Jamison since that was what I had on hand. I cooked it at 425 for 1 hr and it turned out great. I will definitely be making this again.
Way too much alcohol.I kinda figured the amount of alcohol recommended was too much, but i figured i try it anyway.
