  • 3 pound turkey breast boneless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup gravy
  • .5 cup water


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the turkey on a roasting rack on a sheet pan or roasting pan. Rub it with olive oil and seasonings. Place a thermometer into the middle of the breast.
  • Bake until the turkey breast reaches an internal temperature of 165F.
  • Remove the breast from the oven.
  • Add water to the gravy to keep it thin.
  • Slice the breast into thin pieces and serve with hot gravy.


To make the turkey breast look more significant and dramatic, you can add stuffing to the platter. If you carve it ahead of time it is a good idea to add a little warm gravy. Enjoy!
