This Butter and Herb Roasted Turkey breast is moist, flavorful, and perfect for your small holiday gathering!


Units Scale
  • 1 whole bone-in turkey breast, 6 1/2-7 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup dry white wine


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Place the turkey, skin side up, on a rack in a roasting pan.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary, sage, thyme, salt, pepper, melted butter, and lemon juice. It should form a paste that isn’t super thick.
  4. Gently pull the skin up from the breast, and use your fingers to spread half of the paste under the skin onto the meat. Spread the remaining paste onto the skin.
  5. Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.
  6. Roast the turkey for 1 3/4-2 hours, until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  7. When the turkey is done, allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with the juices from the pan. Enjoy!
