On Boxing day I made the base sauce (step 1) exactly to the recipe, we usually love honey and mustard flavours. Before adding anything else I tasted the sauce, asked my OH to taste as well, we both pulled a face so I threw it out and made a turkey pie instead!

Have used this recipe to use up my chicken from the Lemon Thyme Butter Basted Chicken recipe here. Works extremely well with this. Replaced sage with thyme, took out the apple and added a dash of lemon juice but otherwise followed the recipe. Super quick and easy to do

Really tasty. I only added a teaspoon of honey and it was fine. Quick and easy to do.

Used this recipe as lidl now sell a Turkey breast in 1kilo units. It is superb and makes a very reasonably priced meal. Tasty and enjoyable.

Very easy one you can knock together after work one night. I added left over stuffing as one person suggested and was really pleased with the result.

Really tasty. I used up the last of the gravy and some ham stock (ginger beer version so I didn't need the honey). Served it with lentils (also cooked in ham stock). Delicious.
