Made this recipe and it made a nice turkey breast. I did brine mine for about 8 hours prior to rubbing. I used dried parsley and felt that could be cut back on and instead of vegetable oil I used butter. Added a cup or so of water to the pan so I could make gravy with the drippings, spices etc... This made a savory spiced turkey and with a few adjustments made for personal preferences, I would fix this again. Thank you for posting Karen From Colorado.

i don't usually like turkey because it always turns out dry and flavorless - but i got my free easter turkey and decided to try my luck. this proved my theory wrong entirely - turned out moist and has flavor. Thank you to the reviewer who mentioned 2 hours for a 6.5 lb. breast (mine was just under 7 lbs.) and i didn't have a thermometer so, i did the same - turned out perfect. i sprayed the outside with a mist of olive oil because i didn't have a brush...seemed to work just fine :-) i'll definitely be making this again when turkey time comes around
