Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

 

Have you ever craved turkey, but didn’t have a huge crowd to feed? Well, whether it Thanksgiving or just a random Tuesday dinner, this roasted turkey breast recipe is perfect and delicious.

Honestly this was some of the best turkey I have ever eaten. It was moist, easy, and tasted fantastic.

The turkey breast I got from the store came with some of the turkey innards…which were not fun to remove from the breast, but that traumatizing moment was over in a matter of minutes.
