Preparation time: 10 mins marinating
Cooking time: 2 hours plus standing
Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 12-14 servings
â€¢1 cup lemon juice
â€¢1/2 cup olive oil
â€¢1/4 cup soy sauce
â€¢1/2 cup packed fresh parsley sprigs
â€¢4 green onions, chopped
â€¢2 garlic cloves, peeled
â€¢1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
â€¢1/2 teaspoon each dried oregano and sage leaves
â€¢1/2 teaspoon salt
â€¢1/2 teaspoon pepper
â€¢1 bone-in turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds)
â€¢In a blender, combine the lemon juice, oil, soy sauce, parsley, onions, garlic, mustard and seasonings; cover and process until smooth. Pour 1 cup marinade into a 2-gal. resealable plastic bag; add turkey. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
â€¢ Line the bottom of a large shallow roasting pan with foil. Drain and discard marinade; place turkey on a rack in prepared pan.
â€¢ Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting every 30 minutes with reserved marinade. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.) Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 12-14 servings.
