Ingredients
  1. 1 whole Turkey Breast 4lbs to 7lbs, bone-in and skin-on
  2. 1 tbsp minced garlic
  3. 2 tsp dry mustard
  4. 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
  5. 1 tsp fresh sage leaves
  6. 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  7. 2 tsp salt
  8. 1 tsp ground black pepper
  9. 1 tbsp olive oil
  10. 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  11. 2 cups of chicken stock (or white wine)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, add the next 9 ingredients and process until well blended.
  3. I prefer it to have some texture so smooth isn't necessary.
  4. Loosen skin of turkey breast
  5. Use half of the mixture to rub under the skin and the other half over the skin
  6. Place turkey on rack in roasting pan
  7. Add 1-2 cups of chicken broth to bottom of the roasting pan (use more if you like drippings for gravy)
  8. Bake for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until meat reaches 160 degrees in thickest part.
  9. Remove from oven and let rest for 20 minutes
  10. Carve and enjoy
Notes
  1. Use whatever fresh herbs you like. I tend to use more thyme and less sage but you can switch that if you'd like.
