Turkey Breast with Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce and Roasted Sweet Apples

Turkey for Spring?  What am I thinking? Not sure… I guess I got inspired by Taste of Beirut’s recipe for Apple Chutney that she posted last week and thought of the turkey that was sitting in my fridge.  I instantly thought of pairing the turkey with apples.  Why not chutney?  I did not want to [...]
