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!
