Ingredients and Variations

Turkey Breast – Use a 2 pound boneless turkey breast with skin on. Add extra time if your turkey breast is a little bigger. Butterball or any store brand will work, fresh or frozen. (See notes for cooking times).

Vegetables – Vegetables add loads of savory flavor and a boost of nutrients! Use what’s in this recipe or feel free to toss in leftover veggies. Fresh herbs for poultry are usually packaged together at the supermarket and make quick work of prep! If you’re using dried instead of fresh herbs, convert them to 1 teaspoon of dried for every tablespoon of fresh.

Seasoning Mix – The seasoning blend can be used for any poultry recipe. For a lighter flavor, use this simple garlic and herb blend.
