Ingredients

For the brining stage:
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups water
1 turkey breast, skinless, deboned, and cut in half
For the glaze:
3 tablespoons honey
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions

Step 1

In a bowl, combine the salt, brown sugar, ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, garlic, and water.

Step 2

Pour the brine into a plastic resealable bag.

Step 3

Add the turkey breasts to the bag and massage until all of the meat is coated in the brine.

Step 4

Allow the turkey to brine in the fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight.

Step 5

Add the honey, minced chipotle chile, Dijon mustard, and vinegar all together into a small mixing bowl with a whisk. Set it aside.

Step 6

Set the grill to medium heat if you are using a grill. If you are using a charcoal grill, use a grill thermometer to maintain the heat at 350 degrees F.

Step 7

Move the turkey out from the fridge and discard​ the brine.

Step 8

Pat the turkey dry and brush it over with the glaze.

Step 9

Place the glazed turkey onto the grill and cook it for 25-30 minutes, turning it over once. Continually baste both sides of the turkey with the honey Dijon glaze during the cooking process with a brush, letting it caramelize before adding another layer of glaze.

Step 10

Transfer the turkey to a plate and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.

Step 11

Slice and serve!
