- 1 1/2 cups apple cider or apple juice, divided
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- Remove turkey from oven and lower temperature to 325 degrees F. In a bowl, combine 1 cup apple cider, the Worcestershire sauce, and cinnamon; pour mixture over turkey breast.
- Cover and bake 45 minutes or until turkey reaches 165 degrees F, basting occasionally with cider mixture.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk flour and remaining 1/2 cup apple cider. Remove turkey from pan to a cutting board to let rest. Stir flour mixture into pan drippings and cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until gravy is thickened. Slice turkey and serve with gravy.
