1 large onion sliced
1 large carrot sliced
1 celery rib sliced
2 large garlic cloves sliced
1 tablespoon dried sage

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon apple brandy

Instructions

Brown turkey on all sides in oil in a large pot over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Remove from pot. Add wine to pot, scraping up browned bits from bottom.

Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer 1-1/2 hours or until internal temperature registers 165 degrees. Remove breast to platter when cool enough to handle.

Bring to simmer. Mix 2 tablespoons water and cornstarch in small bowl. Stir into pot, cook over medium heat, whisking gently until thickened slightly, about one minute. Taste test for seasonings.
