You guys…this recipe is amazing! Not only is it easy, but it’s so flavorful. The gravy (you know how much I love gravy!) is gorgeous, and delicious. The turkey is juicy and oh so tasty. It’s so nice to take a break from the monster turkey and concentrate on a simply turkey breast dinner. Simple and delicious. My 2 favorite recipe ingredients.

  4. Chive stalks with roots cut off
  5. 1 cup of water
  6. 2 Tbsp. of olive oil
  7. 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  8. 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  9. 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  10. 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  11. 1 teaspoon paprika
  12. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  13. 1 cup water
  14. 1 chicken bouillon cube
Instructions
  1. Put the turkey breast in your roasting pan
  2. Place the onion, celery, and chives around the breast
  3. Add water to the bottom of the pan
  4. Rub olive oil over the breast
  5. Mix the spices, lemeon-pepper, garlic, onion powder, sage and paprika
  6. Rub over the olive oil
  7. Roast uncovered, in the oven at 325 degrees, basting about every 30 minutes
  8. Bake for about 2 &1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature of the breast reaches 170 degrees
  9. Remove the turkey from the oven and let the turkey rest while you prepare the gravy
  10. In a medium size sauce pan, add the juices from the turkey pan
  11. Because some juices will have evaporated, make a flour and water mixture with about 1/2 cup of water and the 2 Tbsp. of flour
  12. Add that to the juices from the turkey
  13. Add the bouillon cube
  14. Whisk together, and boil until thickened
  15. Slice turkey breast and serve with gravy
Notes
  1. *If you find all of the water has evaporated (it happens sometimes), then add about 1/2 cup to the bottom of the pan. Incorporate the drippings from the turkey with the water by mixing them into your water.
