Some people just want to cook turkey breast instead of an entire turkey. Juicy bacon does double duty in this Thanksgiving showstopper by keeping the lean turkey meat nice and moist and delivering a crispy outer layer. If you’re using store bought gravy, you might want to stir in chopped herbs like parsley or chives, or add a squeeze of lemon juice and some grated zest for a hit of fresh flavor.
This herb roasted turkey is cooked with apples and shallots, that are cooked inside the turkey, to keep the meat moist and adds a rich flavor. The extra shallots in the roasting pan also give the gravy recipe a rich, caramelized onion depth and, with apple cider, the gravy is so delicious. The easy turkey stock adds extra flavor to the gravy.
This recipe is great for either a weeknight or weekend dinner requiring very little attention once the chicken is on the barbecue. Making your own harissa paste will give you a much more vibrant and flavorful result than something from a jar. You will only need half of the harissa for the chicken recipe, leaving you extra to keep in the fridge to use in your cooking over the following days.

I had a real craving for green curry and didn’t want to try and hunt some down during pandemic restaurant life. It’s actually very easy to make on your own and you can add any additional vegetables that you want.
