Stuffed Turkey Breasts
Marinating Stuffed Turkey Breasts in a blend of Kikkoman Soy
Sauce, sherry and sugar, helps seal in the turkey's natural
juices and enhances the meat's delicious flavor.
2 turkey breast halves (about 3 lbs. each), boned
5 tablespoons Kikkoman Soy Sauce, divided
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon sugar
8 slices day-old bread, shredded
1 cup finely chopped celery
2/3 cup sliced natural almonds, toasted
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions and tops
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Remove fillets from breast halves; reserve for another use.
Starting with thinner edge, cut each breast in half lengthwise,
horizontally, almost all the way through. Open up breasts and
pound to 1/4-inch thickness.
Combine 3 Tbsp. soy sauce, sherry and sugar in large shallow
dish. Add breasts, skin side down; marinate 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine bread, celery, almonds and onions. Blend
butter with remaining 2 Tbsp. soy sauce; pour evenly over
bread mixture and toss together until moist and crumbly.
Remove turkey; reserve marinade. Spread 1/2 of stuffing mixture
on 1/2 of each breast half, leaving a narrow border along outside
edges; pack stuffing down slightly. Close breasts and secure with
skewers or toothpicks; brush with reserved marinade. Place on rack
in baking pan.
Roast at 325°F. 1 hour 15 minutes, or until tender; brush with
reserved marinade every 30 minutes.
Remove to serving platter; let stand 15 minutes. Just before
serving, remove skewers and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick
Makes 8 to 10 servings
