"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."

"I lifted up the skin of the turkey breast and rubbed the seasonings onto the meat so the flavor would be absorbed. The turkey had a wonderful taste and was very moist. Will definitely be making it again."

"This was seriously the easiest, best tasting turkey I have ever made. I did substitute a boneless 3 lb turkey breast because that is what I had, but everything else I did the same. My house smelled wonderful while it cooked, my husband, 3 year old son and I all loved it, and it was so easy to prepare. This will be a go to favorite from now on!"
