  • 2 pound boneless skinless turkey breast (approximately 1 kilogram)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed or finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary chopped, dried or fresh
  • 1 teaspoon thyme chopped, dried or fresh
  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the turkey breast on a plate or board and pat it dry with paper kitchen towels.
  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, rosemary, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper until the herbs are distributed throughout the butter.
  • Rub the butter mixture all over the turkey breast, top and bottom, making sure every inch is coated in butter.
  • Place the coated turkey breast in a shallow casserole dish or baking dish and roast at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 90 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into the deepest part of the breast reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 Celsius).
  • Remove the turkey breast from the oven and cover with aluminum foil (leave it in the pan). Let it rest for about 10-15 minutes, then slice and serve.


Prepare this turkey breast one day ahead of your holiday gathering and re-heat before serving if desired.
Be sure your boneless-skinless turkey breast is thawed completely before beginning this recipe. Using a turkey breast that's still frozen in the middle will change the cooking time and cause a dry end result.
