Made this recipe and it made a nice turkey breast. I did brine mine for about 8 hours prior to rubbing. I used dried parsley and felt that could be cut back on and instead of vegetable oil I used butter. Added a cup or so of water to the pan so I could make gravy with the drippings, spices etc... This made a savory spiced turkey and with a few adjustments made for personal preferences, I would fix this again. Thank you for posting Karen From Colorado.
i don't usually like turkey because it always turns out dry and flavorless - but i got my free easter turkey and decided to try my luck. this proved my theory wrong entirely - turned out moist and has flavor. Thank you to the reviewer who mentioned 2 hours for a 6.5 lb. breast (mine was just under 7 lbs.) and i didn't have a thermometer so, i did the same - turned out perfect. i sprayed the outside with a mist of olive oil because i didn't have a brush...seemed to work just fine :-) i'll definitely be making this again when turkey time comes around
This came out great. Turkey was very moist and full of flavor.
Awesome flavor! My dh loved this and we will try it on a full Turkey next time. My Turkey breast got a bit dry...I used a bag and did 375 for the first hour and 325 for the next. Way to hot or to much time. I also used butter instead of basting with oil. And my fresh herb mix was spaghetti seasoning. LOL...I didn't have what you suggested.
This was fabulous!! Great taste - and very moist! Thank you for the recipe.
Outstanding flavors. I omitted Parmesan and cooked in oven bag! My husband even liked it and wanted to know what I did different. I really think it is the lemon flavor. I'm going to make another one today.
Excellent! 5+ stars! So good in fact, that I'd like to try this on a whole bird some time. I used the thyme, marjoram, oregano combo with romano cheese (my only change since I didn't have parmesan) and the result was to die for. Such subtle flavoring - nothing overpowering at all, and was loved by the kids as well as the adults. I had a 6.5 lb. turkey breast, and these measurements were perfect. The meat was juicy, the skin was golden and crisp. I did not use a thermometer, but cooked it for exactly 2 hrs. which was perfect. I even made gravy from the pan drippings with the little bag of gravy mix that comes with the breast, and it too was perfect - no additional seasonings needed. And the house smelled divine while it was baking - this one goes in my permanent file - I will make it again and again. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
Excellent! I used a combination of oregano and lemon thyme. The lemon thyme was a little overwhelming but the overall flavor of the turkey was wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
