Herbs tucked under the skin give the turkey a wonderful aroma as it's roasting, and the lemon juice adds a subtle hint of citrus.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 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
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.
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.
