I often buy just a half of a turkey breast and this is a great way to roast it. From Better Homes and Gardens Quick & Easy Diet Recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 12 lbs fresh turkey breast halves, with bone about 2 1/2 pounds
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Meanwhile, for seasoning mixture, in a small bowl or custard cup combine Italian seasoning, salt and garlic powder.
  2. Remove and discard skin from turkey breast half. Using a sharp knife, cut 2 lengthwise slits about 1 1/2 inches apart from the top to, but not through, the bottom of the turkey. Sprinkle seasoning mixture into slits. Then rub oil over surface of turkey.
  3. Place turkey on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer near center of breast half. Cover loosely with foil.
  4. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or till the thermometer registers 170. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  5. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
