Ingredients

Olive oil or as needed
1 1/2 Tbsp
Parsley
1 tsp
Rosemary
1 tsp
Thyme
1 tsp
Sage (optional)
1 tsp
Salt and pepper for seasoning (to taste)
Onion, sliced
1
Carrot, chopped
1
Chicken broth
1 cup

Utensils

  • Twine
  • Kitchen brush
  • Small casserole dish

Instructions

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.
