Ingredients

Instructions

  • Several hours before (or preferably the day before) cooking, season the outside and the cavity of the turkey breast with salt. Pat lightly on the outside to adhere the salt to the skin. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Remove the turkey from the fridge 1 hour before cooking.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, with the rack set in the lower third of the oven. Place a rack in a roasting pan (see Note below).
  • In a small bowl, stir the olive oil, sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper until combined.
  • Place the turkey breast, skin side up on the rack in the roasting pan.
  • Slide your hand under the breast skin to loosen. Rub half of the olive oil-herb mixture under the skin. Rub the remaining mixture over the outside of the turkey breast.
  • Cook they turkey until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the breast is 165 degrees F. While cooking, juices from the turkey will accumulate in the bottom of the roasting pan. Spoon these juices over the turkey every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Let the turkey rest for 15 minutes. Slice and serve.
