Turkey Breast with Roasted Broccolini

Turkey Breast with Roasted Broccolini

4, plus leftover turkey for lunch Servings

You can find five-spice powder, the Chinese-inspired combination of star anise, fennel, cinnamon, Sichuan peppercorns, and cloves, at many supermarkets. We really like the fresh intensity and balance of the five-spice powder from World Spice.


  • 1 turkey breast on the bone (about 2¼ lb.)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1½ teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 bunches broccolini (about 1¼ lb.), ends trimmed

Recipe Preparation

  • Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425°.

  • Remove turkey breast from refrigerator at least 15 minutes before cooking. Loosen the skin and rub 1 Tbsp. oil on top and bottom of the turkey breast, as well as under the skin. Season turkey all over with five-spice powder, salt, and pepper.

  • Place turkey breast on a rimmed baking sheet and tuck garlic cloves beneath it. Cook on lower oven rack until thickest part of turkey breast registers 165° on an instant-read thermometer, 60–75 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest at least 10 minutes before carving.

  • Meanwhile, toss broccolini with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil and season with salt. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet and place on the upper oven rack. Cook until broccolini is crisp on the edges, 25-30 minutes.

  • Remove garlic from under turkey breast; roughly chop and toss with broccolini. Serve broccolini with slices of turkey. Reserve 4 oz. of meat for tomorrow’s lunch.
