    MirandaLee's Note:

    A low-fat turkey recipe that I make every Thanksgiving. Basting with a mixture of wine and broth keeps the breast juicy and tender. From Lean and Lovin' It.

      I bought a turkey breast when it was on sale, then had no idea how to roast it! :)This recipe was simple and delicious... the turkey was very moist. I didn't make the gravy, as I am not too fond of gravy, so I only used 2 cups of liquid (I didn't have the wine, so I only used the broth),but other than that, I followed the reciped exactly and it turned out great! Thanks so much!

      I'm not sure the aromatics (carrots, celery, and onion) add that much sitting beneath the turkey. It's also very cumbersome to baste every 15 minutes. So much heat escapes the oven, you're constantly re-heating the oven. I think a simplier method is in order.

      Very good! I did change it a bit in that I used one of those oven bags to bake it in. I also set my oven at 325 F.
