Magical Roasted Turkey Breast #turkeyrecipes

This Simple Herb and Garlic Roasted Turkey Breast is the perfect way to get delicious roasted turkey in about one hour without the fuss!


  • 3 pound turkey breast, bone in, skin on
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the turkey and pat it dry.
  2. Combine the garlic, herbs, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl. Rub the mixture all over the turkey, top to bottom, and underneath the skin. Place in a roasting pan or a rimmed baking sheet. No rack required.
  3. Roast at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast, without touching bone, reaches 165 degrees.
  4. Cover the turkey with foil and allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes. Carve and serve!


  • For best results, rub the turkey breast and leave out at room temperature for about one hour prior to roasting. This way, it will cook much more evenly.
  • Use the drippings to make a pan gravy if you wish. The meat will be plenty moist without it, so the choice is yours!
  • I used the convection roast feature on my oven at 325 degrees. If you don’t have convection, simply roast at 350 degrees.
  • Fresh herbs may be substituted for dried — use about 1 tablespoon of each.
