BBQ Turkey Breasts
First, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Take a baking tray and line it with some aluminium foil. Place a rack on top of it and brush lightly with olive oil.
Note that in case of a grill, the roast takes half of the time. Bake for about 10 minutes, then brush with BBQ Sauce. Repeat 2 times.
Season the meat with salt and pepper and place in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, In a small frying pan heat up a splash of olive oil on medium heat. Sauté the onion for about 3 minutes.
Add vinegar, ketchup, 1 cup of water, garlic, cumin and sugar. Stir and let it work for about 5 minutes.
Next, add chili and taste. Sprinkle with Worcestershire Sauce. Let it cook for another 2 minutes and take off the heat.
Take the meat out of the oven and brush with BBQ Sauce. Return into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Repeat the procedure twice until baked through and BBQ Sauce nicely sticks on it. Done.
