  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. With fingers, carefully loosen skin from the turkey breast; rub half of mixture under the skin. Secure skin to underside of breast with toothpicks. Rub skin with remaining mixture. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a thermometer reads 170°. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing; discard toothpicks.
