Healthy Christmas LunchCitrus Turkey Breast with Thyme Infused Baby Carrots and Potatoes

Fed up with spending Christmas morning cooking for hours on end? This recipe will provide you with a delicious heart-healthy Christmas lunch that won’t take hours so you can enjoy your day with family and friends.

Cooking time: 30 – 35 minutes
Serves 4 – Any leftover turkey will be a tasty addition to Boxing Day sandwiches, omelettes and salads

Ingredients
  • 8 whole fresh baby potatoes
  • 12 whole fresh mini/baby carrots
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger – finely grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Spray olive oil
  • 450g skinless turkey breast (4 x 125g steaks) fat trimmed off
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place baby potatoes and carrots on a baking tray lined with baking paper and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh thyme. Cook for around 30 minutes or until golden and tender.
  2. Warm a large non-stick frying pan lightly sprayed with olive oil on a medium-high heat. Add turkey breast cooking for 5-6 minutes each side or until cooked through and juices run clear. When cooked, remove from the frying pan and pop on a plate to one side.
  3. Add the ginger to the pan and cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add the zest, lemon juice, honey and orange juice. Simmer, stirring, for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Return turkey to the pan and cook, turning to coat in the sauce, for one minute.
  4. Serve turkey with roasted potatoes and carrots. Add a bowl of steamed broccoli florets and green beans for extra crunch, vitamins, and colour.
