Turkey with Mole Sauce
- 3/4 cup Mole Sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 3/4 pounds boneless, skinless turkey breast
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together mole sauce and 1/2 cup water until smooth.
In a large heavy-bottom saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high. Season turkey with salt and pepper; cook, rounded side down, until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn breast; pour mole mixture over turkey.
Cover tightly; bake until turkey is no longer pink in the middle (an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part should register 165 degrees), about 40 minutes. Transfer turkey to a cutting board; let rest 10 minutes before thinly slicing.
Stir sauce in pan to combine; serve with turkey. Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired.
