This garlic and herb seasoned boneless skinless turkey breast is tender, juicy and full of flavor. It's the perfect recipe for a holiday turkey dinner or an easy weeknight meal.


  • 1 boneless skinless turkey breast (about 780 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. 
  2. Pat turkey breast dry with paper towel. Combine olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture on all sides of the turkey breast and place the breast in a medium casserole dish or a small baking tray lined with unbleached parchment paper. 
  3. Roast uncovered for about 1 hour (depending on the size of your turkey breast), check for doneness with a meat thermometer periodically after 45 minutes baking time. The turkey breast will bake on average about 25 minutes per pound (454 grams). 
  4. When the internal temperature reaches 160°F remove from oven and tent with a sheet of aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes to rest. When internal temperature rises to 165°F the turkey breast is done. Resting will allow the juices time to reabsorb into the meat, keeping it tender and juicy.


Cooked turkey breast will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can freeze the turkey for up to 3 months. 

Use leftovers in soup, sandwiches or salads.
