    Lvs2Cook's Note:

    A little different from most roast turkey recipes -- a great recipe for any special occasion. If you don't have reisling wine, any good white wine can be used.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sprinkle turkey breast evenly with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Stir together butter, rosemary, and sage. Loosen skin from turkey without detaching it; spread butter mixture under skin. Arrange one-fourth of orange and lemon slices over butter mixture. Gently pull skin over fruit. Coat with cooking spray. Place turkey in an aluminum foil-lined baking pan coated with cooking spray. Place onion and remaining orange and lemon slices in pan. Drizzle with wine.
    3. 3
      Bake at 325° for 2 hours and 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 170°, basting every 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Cover loosely with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray to prevent excessive browning after 1 hour and 30 minutes, if necessary.

      I made this recipe for Thankgiving this year (2009) and it was delicious. The turkey was so moist. It was a big hit. I made it exactly like the recipe, with no changes. Thank you!

      I loved this recipe! I made it without the wine, just roasted it and added 4 TBSP of chopped parsley to the rosemary and sage. Hubby said it was the best turkey ever!!

      I love citrus, I love herbs - not so keen on turkey breast, but this turned out well. I did brine the breast in a simple brine for about 5 hrs. (5 lb. breast). I did not add any additional salt, and used only one lemon and one orange, as my breast was smaller, and forgot to put in the onion. Next time I will not use all the lemon, as we found the juices just a little too lemony, needed a bit more of orange to balance. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable spray. I will make this again, but will want to tweak the proportions a bit.
