2 3 to 3 pound fresh or frozen bone-in turkey breast halves
Nonstick cooking spray
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Thaw turkey, if frozen. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a large roasting pan and rack with cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, salt, cumin, chili powder, and pepper. Set aside.
Slip your fingers between the skin and meat of turkey beast halves to loosen skin, leaving skin partially attached at edges. Left skin and spread brown sugar mixture evenly under skin over meat. Place turkey breast halves, bone sides down, on rack in prepared pan. Insert an oven-safe meat thermometer into thickest part of breast half. Thermometer should not touch bone.
Roast, uncovered on lower rack in preheat oven to 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Roast for 1 to 1 hours more or until thermometer registers 170 degrees and turkey is no longer pink, occasionally spooning pan juice over turkey. Cover loosely with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before slice.
Yield: Makes 8 servings.
