Herbed Turkey Breast

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by Kate in Ontario

This recipe I adapted from a magazine Taste of Home's Light & Tasty. The aroma is great and the oil and juice under the skin keep it nice and moist. The chopped veggies add great flavor to the gravy.

Made this for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was excellent. I believe it is the best turkey breast I have ever eaten. Easy to do and I changed nothing.
