•1 bone-in turkey breast (5 to 6 pounds)
•5 teaspoons lemon juice
•1 tablespoon olive oil
•1 to 2 teaspoons pepper
•1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
•1 teaspoon dried thyme

•With fingers, carefully loosen the skin from both sides of turkey breast. Combine lemon juice and oil; brush under the skin. Combine the pepper, rosemary, thyme and garlic salt; rub over turkey.
• Place onion and celery in a 3-qt. baking dish. Top with turkey breast, skin side up. Pour wine into the dish.
• Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting every 30 minutes with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 10-12 servings.
