  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zested

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (5-6 pound) bone-in, skin-on turkey breast
  • 3 carrots, cut on the bias into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 parsnips, cut on the bias into 2-inch pieces

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Combine
    oil, lemon zest, parsley, garlic, salt, thyme, sage and pepper in a small bowl. Rub oil mixture over the turkey and under skin.
