Cooking Time2 hr


  • 1 (6 to 7 pound) whole bone-in turkey breast
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped; plus 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 teaspoon fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, or 1 teaspoon fresh
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard (optional)
  • 1 whole lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth or white wine


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine onion, garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, basil, lemon juice, paprika, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix to create a paste-like consistency.

  3. Pull the skin of the turkey up and rub the mixture on the meat, reserving a small amount to rub on the outside of the turkey. Rub remaining herb mixture on the outside of the turkey.

  4. Place the turkey in the roasting pan and pour in your white wine or chicken broth. Place the remaining 2 fresh rosemary sprigs in the pan.

  5. Roast for 1.5 to 2.5 hours, until the skin is golden brown and an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest part of the breast.

  6. Loosely cover turkey with aluminum foil and let cool 15 minutes before carving.
