cooking spray

1 spray(s)

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, red or yellow, sliced

reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ cup(s)

uncooked boneless skinless turkey breast

2 pound(s), a whole roast or breast tenderloin

table salt

½ tsp, or to taste

black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

hoisin sauce

½ cup(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray. Arrange onion slices in bottom of prepared pan; pour in broth.
  2. Season turkey all over with salt and pepper; place turkey on top of onion slices in pan. Using the back of a spoon, spread hoisin sauce all over turkey.
  3. Bake until turkey is no longer pink in middle and an instant-read thermometer inserted in middle of turkey reads at least 165ºF, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let turkey stand 10 minutes before slicing crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Yields about 3 ounces of turkey and 1/8 of onions per serving.


We roasted the turkey over onions which soak up the sauce while getting golden brown and caramelized.
