Turkey pot roast dinner

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1⅓ cup Defatted chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 medium Onion; chopped
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 tablespoon Finely chopped fresh ginger
1 tablespoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Ground coriander
¾ teaspoon Ground allspice
½ teaspoon Ground cardamom
¼ teaspoon Salt
⅛ teaspoon Ground black pepper
1 Skinless; (1 3/4 lbs) boneless turkey breast half
5 larges Carrots; cut into 1-inch pieces
5 larges Potatoes; peeled and cut into eighths
4 larges Onions; quartered

Now that boneless turkey breasts halves are readily available in supermarkets, you can make a "pot roast" dinner quite quickly.

In a Dutch oven, stir together the broth, chopped onions, lemon juice, oil, ginger, paprika, coriander, allspice, cardamom, salt and pepper.

Add the turkey and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat, cover and gently simmer for 8 minutes. Turn the turkey over and continue simmering, covered, for 8 minutes more.

Layer the carrots, potatoes and quartered onions around the turkey. Cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the vegetables and turkey are tender.

To serve, slice the turkey. Then arrange the turkey and vegetables on a deep serving platter. Spoon the broth mixture over the turkey and vegetables.

Work ahead: To save even more time on a busy weekday evening, cook the turkey and vegetables ahead. Slice the turkey. Reheat in the microwave.
