CITRUS HERB TURKEY BREAST

F&L Market has Turkey breast for $1.29 a pound. This is a delicious way to roast a half a breast, or two, at a time.
Ingredients:
  • 1 6-7 lb. bone-in turkey breast, or 3-4 lb. half-breast, skin intact
  • 1 orange, quartered
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Rinse the turkey breast and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Place quartered oranges and onion wedges on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. Top with sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over turkey breast and sprinkle with chopped thyme, rosemary, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Rub into the skin.
  6. Place turkey breast into the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
  7. Reduce heat to 350F and cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until turkey reaches 165 degrees with an instant-read thermometer.
  8. Remove turkey from the oven and tent with foil for 20 minutes.
  9. Slice and serve.
Note: If the turkey skin isn’t as crisp as you like after cooking, place under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and then tent with foil. Slice and serve.
