Herbed Turkey Breast Recipe

Herbed Turkey Breast Recipe

Like many of you, I always serve turkey for our family's Thanksgiving meal. But instead of roasting a whole bird, I opt for a turkey breast since most of us prefer white meat. The herb butter basting sauce keeps it so moist, and it's easy to carve. —Ruby Williams, Bogalusa, Louisiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours + standing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (5-1/2 to 6 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Place turkey in a shallow roasting pan; baste with butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting every 30 minutes. Yield: 10-12 servings.
