  • Pan
  • Roasting Tray
  • Wire Rack
  • Oven


For Compound Butter

  • ¾ cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sage (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Rosemary (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Thyme (chopped)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (finely grated)
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt

For Turkey

  • 1 2-pound Turkey Breast (skin on, boneless)
  • ½ cup Chicken Stock
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

For Gravy

  • 1 tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  • First, preheat the oven to 400℉.
  • In a bowl, add the butter along with sage, rosemary, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, and salt. Mix it to make the compound butter.
  • Pat dry the turkey breast and season it with salt and pepper. Rub the compound butter on the turkey as well as under its skin.
  • Place a wire rack in a roasting pan and put the turkey over it. Place the pan in the oven to bake it for 50-55 minutes. Baste the turkey with the juices every 15 minutes while baking. Also, after halftime, pour some ½ cup into the pan.
  • When the turkey looks golden, take it out. It is cooked if its internal temperature registers 155℉.
  • Remove the fat from the pan drippings and pour them into a pan. Add flour to the pan and keep stirring. Then, slowly add chicken stock and keep stirring.
  • Cook the gravy on low heat for 3-4 minutes.
  • Then, cut the turkey breast and serve it with gravy.
