- Kitchen brush
- Small casserole dish
Remove the turkey breast from the fridge (or freezer) and let it sit out to come to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Tie the turkey breast with twine to give it shape.
Brush the turkey breast with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and herbs.
Place the turkey breast in a small casserole dish and place the onions, carrots, and any extra herbs alongside it.
Add about 1 cup of broth to the bottom of the dish - just enough to cover the bottom.
Roast the turkey uncovered for 30 minutes.
Continue roasting (an additional 30-60 minutes) until the temperature in the thickest part of the breast reaches 160°F.
(Suggested: Pull out of oven before the internal temp is lower than the suggested by 5 degrees because it'll keep cooking once you pull it out - you don't want to overcook)
Remove from the oven and let rest before slicing about 10 minutes.
