Tender Turkey Breast

  1 turkey breast, thawed  
¼ cup oil  
1 ½ cups chicken broth (1 ½ cups water with 1 ½ tsp. bouillon paste)  
2 Tab. mayonnaise  

Remove package and drain juices. Place turkey in a roasting pan. Combine oil and chicken broth. Pour over turkey. Rub mayonnaise over the turkey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired. Roast at 325 F until internal temperature is 170 F, anywhere from 1 hour (3-lb. turkey breast) to 3¼ hours (8 lbs. turkey breast). If desired, use drippings to make gravy. You may need to increase amounts of oil and broth if you will be making a large amount of gravy.

Variation: If desired, mix some or all of the following seasonings with the mayonnaise before spreading it on turkey:

  2-3 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. thyme
  If necessary, add a bit more mayonnaise to make mixture spreadable.
