"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."

"Made this for Thanksgiving and we could not get over how moist this turkey breast was. Because I was making only a turkey breast I was concerned it would be dry. This was excellent! Will definitely be making again."
