Ingredients
  1. 1 (6-pound) turkey breast, thawed, rinsed, and patted dry
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  3. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  4. 1⁄2 cup Port wine
  5. 1⁄2 cup dark molasses
  6. 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  7. 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Rub surface of turkey breast with 
1 tablespoon olive oil. Place, breast side up, on rack in roasting pan. Cook for 2 to 2 1⁄2 hours or until breast registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
  3. In a small saucepan, whisk together remaining 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, wine, molasses, teriyaki sauce, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce to a simmer (low to medium-low), and cook until slightly thickened, about 12 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Glaze should coat the back of a spoon.
  4. Baste turkey with glaze during last 30 minutes of roasting. Remove pan from oven, and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
