Here, we explore a standout recipe for Roasted Turkey Breast that promises tender, flavorful perfection with every bite.


▢1 Whole or Half Bone-in Turkey Breast* , or boneless
Herb Butter:
▢1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened
▢1/2 teaspoon salt
▢1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
▢3 cloves garlic , minced
▢1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme , chopped
▢1 1/2 teaspoons fresh rosemary , chopped
▢1/2 teaspoon fresh sage , chopped


  1. Thaw turkey, if frozen. A general rule of thumb is 24 hours for every 5 pounds of Turkey. Remove the thawed turkey from the fridge 20 minutes before cooking.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. Make herb butter by combining butter, garlic, salt, pepper, and fresh herbs in a bowl.
  4. Prep Turkey: Remove turkey from packaging and use paper towels to pat the turkey dry on all sides. Season the outside with some salt and pepper. Loosen the skin of the turkey breast and smear a spoonful of herb butter under the skin, spreading it over both sides of the breast. Spread remaining herb butter all of the outside of the turkey breast. Place in a baking dish or sheet pan.
  5. Roast: Position oven racks so the turkey will sit in the center of the oven. Cook at 325 degrees F for about 14-15 minutes per pound, or until internal temperature (inserted into the thickest part of the breast) reaches 165 degrees. (I usually take it out just shy of 165 degrees, as it will continue to cook as it rests).
  6. Rest: Remove from oven and cover turkey with a piece of aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes before carving.
