I've been making turkeys since I was 16, and this is by far the greatest tasting turkey breast that I have ever had. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT. Don't question it like I did at first. Just Try it. IT IS FANTASTIC!


1 Whole Turkey Breast
1/2 cup Butter; melted
1 can Chicken Broth
3 Tbls Mayonnaise

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Clean thawed turkey breast and place in a baking pan (foil is good for cleanup). Melt butter. Pour chicken broth and melted butter over turkey breast and spread the mayonnaise all over skin. Bake as directed on packaging (cooking time will vary based on size of breast). I basted about every 30 minutes. This method is not too dry and not too moist, and the taste is wonderful (NO!! BEYOND WHAT WORDS CAN SAY)

I found this recipe somewhere online and have been making it every since. I know you will enjoy this.

Brined the turkey breast first for 8 hours. Then roasted. Moist and the best ever.

Absolutely fantastic! After 30+ years of Thanksgiving turkeys I finally found a recipe that makes one I am proud to serve. Turkey moist without being slimey (yuk) and the taste perfection. Thanks so much for the fabulous post!
