      I made this for a dinner party and it was pretty good. It looked wonderful when it came out of the oven but next time I would use less orange juice and more lemon as that's just more to my liking. I also added some onions in the bottom of the roasting pan and then thickened the drippings with a bit of cornstarch and served it as a kind of au jus along side the turkey. I will try again but use less orange juice.

      Great combo of spices and the turkey was lovely and moist when done. I had a fresh turkey breast instead of a frozen one so it cooked a bit quicker. We really enjoyed this, thanks for posting.
