We modified and converted the recipe into VitaClay! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 small (golf-ball sized) onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 lemon, scrubbed clean
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • Large handful fresh flat-leaf parsley (about 1/2 cup, from 12 stems)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more as needed
  • 6 fresh bay leaves
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 boneless turkey breast halves, skin on (about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds each)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup apple or regular brandy (recommended: Calvados)
  • 2 cup apple cider
  • Salt and pepper

Directions (method 1)

  1. Put the onion into the bowl of a mini food processor. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zest from the lemon in thin strips, being careful not to cut into the bitter white pith. Add the lemon zest to the food processor and reserve the whole lemon for another use. Chop the onion and lemon zest until fine. Add the sage, parsley, olive oil, and 1 teaspoon salt and pulse until it forms a coarse paste.
  2. Put 2 of the bay leaves and the butter into a small pan and heat over medium-low heat until the butter is bubbling. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Pour brandy and apple cider in your Vitaclay pot.
  4. Put the turkey breasts on a work surface. Carefully run your fingers between the skin and the flesh from 1 end, being careful not to pull it completely off, creating a pocket. Season the turkey breasts generously with flour, salt and pepper. Stuff half of the herb paste under the skin of each breast, and spread it evenly under the skin.
  5. Transfer the breasts to your VitaClay pot, and slide 2 bay leaves underneath each one. (The heat of the pan will release the bay leaf oils and flavor the breast.) Using a pastry brush, baste the breasts with half of the bay butter.
  6. Add the rest of ingredients in clay pot.
  7. Set on Stew or Fast to cook for 1 hour. (Note, if you have only 1-2 lbs of boneless turkey breast, cook for 30 to 40 minutes only or until breast cooked through and tender)
  8. Slice the turkey breast on the diagonal, and serve with warm gravy from your clay pot).

Directions (method 2, the Lazy Way to make it in Clay!)

  1. Mix onion, lemon zest, sage leaves, parsley, flour, salt and pepper in your clay pot. Add turkey breast and coat on each side and inside the skin of turkey breast
  2. Pour brandy and apple cider in your Vitaclay pot. Add the rest of ingredients in your clay pot.
  3. Set on Stew or Fast to cook for 1 hour. (Note, if you have only 1-2 lbs of boneless turkey breast, cook for 30 to 40 minutes only or until breast cooked through and tender)
  4. Slice the turkey breast on the diagonal, and serve with warm gravy from your clay pot).
