      Is sour cream healthy?

      Yes, sour cream is a healthy dairy product. It includes probiotics, calcium, vitamin D, and of course protein.

      Sour cream can be a part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation and as part of a balanced eating plan.

      How does sour cream work with turkey meat?

      Sour cream usually gives so much tenderness to the meat, especially if you leave it for 30 minutes to marinate and rest. You can marinate in the fridge.

      What are the substitutions?

      Note: In case you don’t have any sour cream at home, you can also use Greek yogurt.

      Light Greek yogurt will be a little liquid on the meat and unlikely to create that beautiful glaze. It is better to use Greek yogurt because of the thickness of the texture.

      Why do you need to combine sour cream and honey?

      The combination of sour cream and honey is just spectacular. The acid which comes from sour cream enhances the turkey flavor and tenderizes the breast. So, as a result, you will get delicious and soft turkey breast meat.

      Are there any special ingredients?

      No, all ingredients are easy to find in your local store.

      What can I serve with the roasted turkey breast with spices?

      You can serve Vegetable Ragout, Potato Gnocchi, Simple Boiled Red Potatoes, Creamy Polenta, mashed potatoes, or even a salad.

      You can also make a sandwich with turkey breast adding some cheese, and sauce of your choice. I usually like to add a little bit of mayo, and to make it healthier I make my own mayo with extra virgin olive oil. Here are two of my favorite recipes: Olive Oil Mayo or Truffle Mushroom Mayo.

      How to serve roasted turkey breast with spices?

      Once the turkey breast is fully cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 5 -10 minutes before slicing and serving. The breast will rest and the juices will redistribute evenly.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      You can store the turkey breast in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days in the fridge, you can also freeze it and keep it for up to 1 month.

      Prepare ingredients

      Prepare ingredients. Wash and dry the turkey breast with paper towel.

      2 min


      Season turkey breast with spices, salt and pepper.

      3 min

      Prepare for baking

      Grease turkey breast with sour cream from all sides. (I use board to grease turkey breast, you can also use a deep bowl.) Add olive oil to baking pan and place turkey breast. Coat turkey breast in olive oil from all sides. Cover with the foil.

      1 h 25 min


      Bake turkey breast in an oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). After 1 hour take the foil off and bake uncovered for 15-25 minutes more until it's golden brown. (You will have lots of delicious juices under the turkey breast, pour them carefully with the spoon over the breast).



      Your Roasted Turkey Breast with Spices is ready. Enjoy!
