INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 Navel Orange (cut into quarters)

  • 1 1/2 Yellow Onion (cut into quarters)

  • 3 1/3 lbs Turkey Breast, Skin On (bone-in)

  • 3/4 tsp Sea Salt

  • 2 1/4 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 1/2 tbsps Thyme (finely chopped)

  • 1 1/2 tbsps Fresh Sage (finely chopped)

  • 1 1/2 tbsps Rosemary (finely chopped)

  • 1 cup Water

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF (218ºC). Arrange the orange and onion quarters in a large baking dish or a roasting pan.

  2. Season the turkey breast on all sides with the salt. Place the seasoned turkey breast on top of the orange and onion in the pan.

  3. In a small mixing bowl combine the oil with the thyme, sage and rosemary. Spoon the oil mixture evenly over top of the turkey breast.

  4. Add water to the bottom of the pan and bake the turkey breast for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350ºF (176ºC) and continue cooking for 30 to 40 minutes or until the turkey is cooked to an internal temperature of 165ºF (74ºC). The skin should be brown and crispy. Be sure to add more water to the pan if it evaporates too quickly or if the pan juices start to burn.

  5. Let the turkey rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy.
