I’m not sure what I am most excited about for this recipe. It is a one sheet pan meal. Yeah to only one dish to wash. My sheet pan is the easiest cooking vessel to wash. That’s double points for this recipe. Next Ancho Chili Rubbed Turkey Breast with Potatoes and Poblanos is versatile. It would be perfect for a small family at Thanksgiving, but there is no need to wait for Thanksgiving. We had it for a Sunday dinner. It works quite perfectly for a Sunday Dinner especially as it gave me leftovers for the all important turkey sandwich for lunch on Monday. That has to be worth 5 bonus points, and we haven’t even got to the most important part, the flavor. I am licking my lips just thinking about it. The ancho chili rub gives the turkey breast fantastic flavor while the yogurt tenderizes and keeps the moisture in. Then you have the potatoes, poblanos and onions that cook in the turkey juice, oh my gosh! They are heart stoppingly good on their own.

In my book, that makes this recipe a super-duper home run. I cannot take credit for this scrumptious recipe. I saw it in a Fine Cooking magazine. I know have written about my love of cookbooks and magazines. When we started to eat healthfully, I thought I would have to give up my magazines except for Cooking Light, of course. Instead I’ve figured out ways to reduce the calories of recipes that inspire me. Turkey breast is already a lean meat. Using yogurt instead of oil or butter in the rub for the turkey reduces fat and calories, plus I think it actually enhances meat. I cut a little of the oil out of the roasted vegetables, too. The rest of the recipe was already healthy. I know you are going to enjoy this recipe as much as we did. Tell me what your plans are for Thanksgiving? Do you have a large crowd to cook for or a small? Is turkey on your menu?

  1. This looks so good! I love the kick of heat from the poblano peppers!
  2. This is a really beautiful dish. I always make a whole turkey, but it is nice to see a gourmet turkey breast recipe that I can use when it is for a small gathering! I am sure my family would still complain that I "cheaped out" though, haha!
