Turkey

Time for a Turkey Recipe!  It's so easy to get lost in the butter and sodium that many Thanksgiving turkeys have; however, that just adds to the tired, bloated feeling that you get after you eat it.  Here is a great recipe to try!
 
 
 
Ingredients:

  • 1 split bone-in, skin-on turkey breast (about 2 1/2 lb)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 Tsp minced Fresh Rosemary Leaves
  • 1 Tsp. Minced Fresh Sage Leaves
  • 2 Tsp. Minced Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 1/2 Tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp. ground black pepper
 
 
Directions:
  1. Preheat over to 425 Degrees F.  Place turkey breast, skin-side up, on a rack in a roasting pan.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice and zest, herbs, salt and pepper.  Using your fingers, gently loosen skin from turkey breast meat without removing it completely.  Rub herb-oil mixture under skin and all over turkey breast meat (including underneath breast as well).
  3. Roast, skin side-up, for 50 to 60 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest part of the breast (test in a few places to make sure).
  4. Cover the turkey with foil and let it rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.  Remove and discard skin, then cut turkey breast from the bone.  
  5. Slice meat and serve!
