Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large shallow roasting pan and roasting rack with cooking spray. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, salt, cumin, chili powder, and 3/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Place turkey, bone side down, on rack in prepared pan. Set aside.

  • Starting at the breast bone of turkey portions, use your fingers to loosen the skin from the meat; leave skin attached at the top. Spread spice mixture evenly under skin over the breast meat. Insert a meat thermometer into thickest part of the breast. (The thermometer should not touch bone.)

  • Roast turkey, uncovered, on the lower rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F; roast for 60 to 90 minutes longer or until juices run clear and turkey is no longer pink (170 degrees F), occasionally spooning pan juices over turkey. Transfer turkey to a cutting board. Let stand, covered with foil, for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

  • Meanwhile, for barbecue sauce, in a medium saucepan cook onion in hot oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. Add cranberry sauce, chili sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve with the turkey. Makes 10 servings.
