From the Test Kitchen

Fall comfort food gets a delicious lift in this recipe. A sweet, toasty compote (simply apple and shallot cooked in brown butter) balances our savory roasted turkey breast. On the side, we’re tossing warm grains with endive—first cooked with a bit of honey and lemon to brighten its mildly bitter flavor.

Add the seasoned turkey, skin side down. Cook 4 to 6 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove, transfer to the sheet pan, skin side up. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until cooked through.
