Fresh Herb Turkey Breast

"This recipe I adapted from a magazine Taste of Home's Light & Tasty. The aroma is great and the oil and juice under the skin keep it nice and moist. The chopped veggies add great flavor to the gravy."

  1. Made this for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was excellent. I believe it is the best turkey breast I have ever eaten. Easy to do and I changed nothing.
     
  2. This recipe is a real winner! It came out very moist with wonderful lemon pepper flavor, and a crispy golden skin. Can't ask for better turkey breast.
     
  3. The turkey was moist, the skin was so tasty, and the gravy was wonderful too. A+ I used a smaller breast and lemon herb seasoning instead of lemon pepper.
