  • Author: Bobby


  • 7 lb turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons of dried rosemary minced
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Then proceed to place the turkey breast skin side up on a roasting pan’s rack or in a lightly greased pan.
  3. You can now combine olive oil, paprika, oregano, rosemary, salt, thyme, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder in a small bowl to make a paste.
  4. Use your finger to loosen the skin and spoon some of the spice mixtures beneath it. Make sure you spread it out as much as possible to coat the meat.
  5. You can rub the remaining spice mixture on top of the turkey breast skin,
  6. Proceed to roast for 20 minutes per pound in the preheated oven until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.  To ensure accuracy, use a meat thermometer, make sure you check the temperature in the thickest area of the breast at the center.
  7. When the meat is ready, remove the pan from the oven and cover it loosely with foil.
  8. You should allow for 15 minutes of resting time until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. After that, slice, serve and enjoy
