Herbs add surprising dimension to this tender turkey breast recipe shared by Denise Goedeken of Platte Center, Nebraska. It's easy for a weeknight meal but fancy enough for company, and just as the name suggests, it's oh-so quick to fix.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Dash garlic powder
  • 1 turkey breast tenderloin (3/4 pound)


  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and microwave on high for 45 seconds or until butter is melted.
  2. Cut tenderloin into four portions; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Broil turkey 4-6 in. from the heat until lightly browned. Brush with some of the butter mixture. Turn turkey over; broil until second side is lightly browned. Brush with butter mixture. Broil 6-8 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink, brushing often with remaining butter mixture.
