herb-roasted turkey breast recipe by rasoi menu


  • 1 whole bone-in turkey breast, 6 1/2 to 7 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup dry white wine

How To Cook?

Step 1: Preheat the oven at 162 °C.

Step 2: Place turkey breast skin side up on a rack in a roasting pan.

Step 3: In a small bowl, combine the garlic, mustard, herbs, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice to make a paste.

Step 4: Loosen the skin from the meat gently with your fingers and smear half of the paste directly on the meat. Spread the remaining paste evenly on the skin. Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.

Step 5: Now, roast the turkey for 1 to 2 hours, until the skin is golden brown and an instant-read thermometer registers 70°C when inserted into the thickest and meatiest areas of the breast.

Step 6: if the skin is over-browning, cover the breast loosely with aluminium foil.

Step 7: When the turkey is done, cover with foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Step 8: Once the turkey is ready, slice and serve with the pan juices spooned over the turkey.
