Turkey breast

I've been cooking a lot of repeats, or crap meals, and didn't post for a while. This was worth it-

Roasted turkey breast

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Place a 1-2 boneless turkey breast, skin side up, on a rack in a roasting pan.

In a small bowl, combine 1/2 t garlic powder, 1/4 t dry mustard1/4 t Rosemary and sage, salt, pepper, 1 T olive oil, and 1 T lemon juice to make a paste. Loosen the skin from the meat gently with your fingers and smear half of the paste directly on the meat. Spread the remaining paste evenly on the skin. Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.

Roast the turkey for 30 min, until the skin is golden brown and an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest and meatiest areas of the breast. (I test in several places.)

 If the skin is over-browning, cover the breast loosely with aluminum foil. When the turkey is done, cover with foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. 

Slice and serve with the pan juices spooned over the turkey.
