This was excellent! DH wanted to know how I got the skin so crisp...:) he was also impress with how moist it was (this is from a guy who likes his turkey dry...) I was shocked...I made as posted with the exception of the gravy...made my own...but the turkey is going to be repeated...it's easy and tasty...btw I cooked mine to 170° and let it rest for 30 mins...Yum!
Boy this is full of flavor and pizzazzz! A bit of Thanksgiving right here on a weeknight. I had a smaller breast - (turkey) so reduced the time it roasted - but no other changes were made, except put some fresh parsley and fresh thyme on top of breast while roasting. How could you go wrong with all this goodness?
