  • Summary

    When you're entertaining a smaller crowd for a holiday meal, opting to serve a turkey breast instead of a whole bird will minimize your time in the kitchen and leave you with fewer leftovers. This roasted turkey breast recipe uses a combination of citrus zest, fresh herbs and butter spread under the skin to keep the meat moist and tender and infuse it with a rich blend of fresh flavors.

    Ingredients

    • 4-1/2 to 7 lb turkey breast
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 6 tablespoons softened, unsalted butter
    • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons fresh sage, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons fresh marjoram, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
    • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
