Moist Turkey Breast

My family always requests this turkey at family gatherings. The Italian dressing adds zip and moistness that you don’t find in other recipes. If you're wondering how to cook a moist turkey breast, this is the recipe to try. —Cindy Carlson, Ingleside, Texas

    Delicious! The house smells so good while this is baking. Nice way to enjoy turkey without having to cook a whole bird.

    With the Italian dressing, can you make gravy? Seems as if it would be a strange taste for gravy.

    I made this turkey breast today, It was the best turkey breast I ever made. I didn't measure anything. I just sprinkled the seasonings on and poured the Italian dressing over. I covered it. Then basted every hour. 8lb breast cooked for 3 hours. So juicy and flavorful. I will be making this again.
