Roasted turkey breast is a great alternative to roasting a whole turkey. You can roast a turkey breast in about an hour, as compared with up to five hours for a whole turkey. Another bonus: With no dark meat to worry about, you can roast a turkey breast at a higher temperature than you would a whole turkey, so the skin gets nice and crispy while the meat remains moist and juicy.
No other holiday has such a laser focus on a single piece of food—the Thanksgiving Turkey. Say what you will about the sweet potatoes, green beans, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, the pies, even the rolls oh, those rolls ; all eyes are on the turkey on Thanksgiving afternoon. If the turkey is just perfect, everything seems brighter.
This turkey breast recipe is your saving grace! The holidays can get a little crazy in this house, with family coming in and coordinating schedules, so I totally get it. All you have to do is season some butter with herbs, salt, and pepper, then rub it under the skin, and get it in the oven.
This traditional roasted turkey is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas family dinners. Remove and discard leg truss from turkey. Pull off and discard any lumps of fat. Remove giblets and neck they're often packed in the neck or body cavity and save for gravy.

Although turkey is a popular meal around the holidays, turkey breast makes a great meal any time of the year! You can adjust the seasonings depending on the type of meal you're making and cook the meat in the oven or slow cooker. Roasting the turkey breast will give it browned, crispy skin, while slow-cooking the turkey will give you a flavorful hands-off meal.
