Fancy up that holiday bird by bathing it in champagne. It's a simple, but fancy way out of the "plain old roasted turkey" rut! Plus, it's a perfect fit for your low-carb diabetes diet!

1 (7-pound) bone-in turkey breast

1/2 pound red seedless grapes, stemmed and cut in half (about 1-1/2 cups), divided

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 (750-ml) bottle champagne (see Options)

1 3/4 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.

2.Place turkey in pan and spoon 1 cup grape halves into neck cavity. Season turkey all over with salt and pepper. Pour champagne into pan around turkey.

3.Roast turkey for 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours, or until no pink remains and juices run clear, basting every 30 minutes with pan juices. If turkey begins to get too browned, cover loosely with aluminum foil.

4.In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, cornstarch, and pan drippings with fat removed; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup grape halves and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through.

5.Carve turkey and serve with champagne-grape sauce.
