Herbed Turkey Breast Recipe

  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (8-1/2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  1. Loosen skin from turkey with fingers, leaving skin attached along bottom edges. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic and seasonings. Spread under turkey skin. Combine remaining lemon juice and oil; set aside. Place turkey on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees, basting every 15-20 minutes with lemon mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes. Discard skin before carving.
