Perfect Roast Turkey Breast Recipe

No one should have to endure dry turkey. After years of serious study and experiments with turkeys, I came up with this recipe that truly is perfect. It's flavorful and never ever dry, and best of all it's SO very easy.
Serves: 7-9 servings
  • 1 7-7½ pound turkey breast, thawed
  • 1-2 Tablespoon butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon MSG free Season Salt, or herb blend of your choice
  1. Preheat oven to 375*
  2. Remove giblets (don't forget to check under the skin at the neck too)
  3. Rinse your turkey with cold water inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Place in a shallow roasting pan.
  5. Melt butter and stir in herbs or spice blend.
  6. Depress plunger on a marinade injector, and draw up a Tablespoon of seasoned melted butter.
  7. Jab the injector deep into the breast meat and slowly press the plunger, injecting butter into the meat. Repeat 3-4 places on each side of the bird.
  8. Rub in any butter drips, and cover tightly with heavy duty foil.
  9. Place in oven & set the timer for 30 minutes.
  10. When your timer goes off, reduce the heat to 200*, and slow roast for 2 hours.
  11. Remove from oven, and turn temp up to 400*
  12. When oven is VERY hot, remove foil and place bird in to brown up skin, approx 10 minutes.
  13. Allow to rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
Expect your bird to take 2-3 days to thaw in the fridge if it's been in a deep freezer. I like to allow about 3½ to 4 hours to slow roast a turkey breast.
