Cooked boneless turkey breast roast with pear chutney on topEasy Boneless Turkey Breast Recipe

I absolutely love all the fall and winter holidays, for two reasons. The first is that it brings all my family together. Second, it means we all get together and cook and eat ALL the best comfort food. For my family, a turkey roast is always on the menu (along with Nanny’s famous rolled cabbage, brisket, and Sweet and Sour Meatballs). I grew up eating this delicious turkey roast, so I have to give a big Lexi’s Clean Kitchen shout out to my amazing mom who made this constantly! She’s not a huge cook, so trust me when I say that you will not believe how simple this is to throw together!

This turkey breast roast is a little different than the Stuffed Turkey Breast I have on the site. For one, this roast isn’t stuffed, but conveniently left in the butcher’s twine and cooked as is. And this recipe is made sweet and savory, thanks to the pairing of this easy pear chutney. It’s the perfect fall meal, small Thanksgiving feast or winter holiday dinner meal. I know we’ll likely have it on our menu this year, and I hope you give it a try too!

Servings 6
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 35 minutes


Pear Chutney

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 3 pears diced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Turkey Roast

  • 2-3 lb. Turkey Breast Roast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 onion sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  • Place boneless turkey breast into baking dish and rub over the top the oil, grated garlic, paprika and salt and pepper.
  • Add to the bottom of the roasting pan the chicken broth and the onions.
  • Bake for 1-2 hours hours until the meat thermometer reaches 170 °F (adjust cooking time for the size of the roast you buy). Every 30 minutes, make sure to baste the turkey by spooning a few spoonfuls of sauce over it. During this basting process, check the temperature of the turkey breast. The baking time will change depending on the size of the turkey roast you choose!
  • Meanwhile, make the chutney: In a medium saucepan, heat oil for about 2-3 minutes until hot. Add in onions and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add raisins and let cook for another 2 minutes. Pour in everything else and stir well. Let simmer for 10 minutes, until sauce thickens and pears are fork tender. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Before serving baste again with the pan drippings.

  1. I absolutely love your pear chutney. For thanksgiving I put that on my turkey rather than gravy and it was just amazing. It’s being made for every holiday from now on:)

  2. Lexi,

    I just started following you and I am loving everything!

    Two questions for you: 1) how would I manipulate this meal for just turkey breasts? 2) can I sub Agave for the Honey?


    1. Hi Emily! Thank you! You can definitely sub agave- but I’d use a little less. I find agave to be super sweet. What do you mean about the turkey breasts? Individual pieces? If so, I’d roast them the same way, with the same ingredients in the pan- but of course the temperature would be different. Does that help/is that what you meant?
