Fancy up that holiday bird by bathing it in champagne. It's a simple, but fancy way out of the "plain old roasted turkey" rut! Plus, it's a perfect fit for your low-carb diabetes diet!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (7-pound) bone-in turkey breast
  • 1/2 pound red seedless grapes, stemmed and cut in half (about 1-1/2 cups), divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle champagne (see Options)
  • 1 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.
     
  2. Place turkey in pan and spoon 1 cup grape halves into neck cavity. Season turkey all over with salt and pepper. Pour champagne into pan around turkey.
     
  3. Roast turkey for 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours, or until no pink remains and juices run clear, basting every 30 minutes with pan juices. If turkey begins to get too browned, cover loosely with aluminum foil.
     
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, cornstarch, and pan drippings with fat removed; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup grape halves and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through.
     
  5. Carve turkey and serve with champagne-grape sauce.

Options

If you'd rather, you can use nonalcoholic sparkling white grape or apple juice, or even apple cider, instead of champagne. It all works to make this a winning change-of-pace roasted turkey your gang will love!
