Boston Market Corporation--formerly Boston Chicken Inc.--grew rapidly after its start in 1985. The quick expansion, however, proved to be the demise of the firm, and in 1998 Boston Market was forced to declare bankruptcy. McDonald's Corporation purchased the struggling chain of restaurants in 2000 and implemented a turnaround strategy designed to rebuild the Boston Market brand. In 2002, the company operated 650 company-owned restaurants in 28 states that offered home-style entrees, fresh vegetables, sandwiches, salads, soups, side dishes, and desserts. Boston Market also offers catering services along with frozen meals available in supermarkets through a partnership with HJ Heinz Company.

1/4 cup butter, melted 
1 1/2 cups chicken broth or 12 ounces beer or 12 ounces white wine

To make the turkey:  Place turkey or turkey breast in a roasting pan. Combine melted butter and chicken broth. Pour over turkey. Rub mayonnaise all over turkey's exterior. Salt lightly if desired. Roast at 300°-325°F until internal temperature reaches 170°F on an instant read thermometer. (Raise the temperature to 350° for the last approximate 30-45 minutes to crisp skin). Remove from oven and let sit for about 30 minutes before slicing. Note: because the butter and broth are for making gravy, if you need to make a lot of gravy, double the amount of both.

To make gravy:  Pour pan drippings into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch per cup of broth/drippings to 1/4 cup cold water. (You'll usually need 2-3 tablespoons Mix well to dissolve. Stir cornstarch mixture into broth and stir until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste.
