For the sauce

  • Combine the heavy cream, parmesan, ouzo and finely chopped garlic in a bowl. Mix with a spoon and add some finely chopped thyme leaves. Set aside until needed.

For the parchment bundles

  • Preheat oven to200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • 1 turkey breast yields 4 portions, so we will need to make 4 parchment bundles.
  • Cut 4 large sheets of parchment paper and 4 large sheets of aluminum foil.
  • Place the aluminum foil under the parchment paper.
  • Start filling your pouches.
  • Put some greens on the parchment paper.
  • Chop the mushrooms in half or into 4 pieces if they are too large. Add a few pieces of mushrooms over the greens. We need the moisture from the mushrooms in the recipe in order to make a nice sauce, so no need to sauté them.
  • Season the mushrooms and greens in each bundle with salt and pepper.
  • Wash the potatoes and do not peel.
  • Cut them into 4 pieces. Brown them lightly in a pan along with some olive oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Add half of the thyme to the pan. When the potatoes have turned golden, remove from pan and divide them among the pouches.
  • Chop the turkey breasts into 4 pieces.
  • Wipe the pan with some paper towels. Add a little olive oil and brown the turkey pieces on both sides.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the remaining thyme leaves. When the fillets have browned, add 1 piece to each parchment bundle.
  • Place bundles into a large baking pan. Crumple to close them, leaving a small opening at the top to add the sauce over the turkey. Add the sauce and close the bundle completely.
  • Put baking pan with parchment bundles in oven.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • While the turkey is cooking, prepare the rice. Take 3 pieces of lemon peel. Pierce each with a clove and put them in a pot.
  • Add the remaining ingredients for the rice to the pot. Heat over medium to high heat, until the first bubble appears in the water and lower the heat quite a bit. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 10-15 minutes until all of the moisture is absorbed. Fluff rice with a spoon.
  • Serve turkey and sauce with rice.
