This was an easy recipe and the flavors, while subtle, were discernible. I made the recipe according to the directions, but eased up on the thyme since my daughter is not fond of that particular herb. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful recipe and the turkey was definitly falling apart tender BUT the flavor was bland for turkey (the turkey had a great taste) but I could not tell anything about the lemon, garlic etc. I will make this again but with alot more garlic and lemon peel. Thank you.
