A foolproof recipe for juicy and flavorful roasted turkey. It doesn't take long and you can cook several at a time to feed a crowd.
Preheat oven to 425°. Rub softened butter over the entire turkey breast and under the skin. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Scatter the fresh herbs and whole cloves of garlic in the bottom of a roasting pan, under the rack. Place the turkey breast on top of the rack.
Roast until the thickest part of the turkey reaches 160°, about 45-50 minutes. If there are separate pieces, test each piece separately and remove from the oven as they are completed. Once completed, let it rest under a piece of foil for 10 minutes before slicing.
