This is such an easy recipe but it requires a post nonetheless. Turkey is so wonderful. It is a lean source of protein and relatively inexpensive. Turkey is great for dinner, even better leftover for lunch the next day as a sandwich.
For several years our family made three marinated turkey breasts for Thanksgiving. My mom would bone and skin the turkey breasts in the morning and then marinate them in three different flavors before they were put on the grill. Needless to say this was extremely popular with all the family. We would have 20 plus people and nothing but compliments.
I find this to be great as a year round meal, not just for Thanksgiving. It is also ideal for a small crowd for the holiday since a whole turkey yields lots of leftovers. We eat it for dinner with veggies. The next day I run the leftovers through the slicer and voila, lunch meat! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Herb Marinated Grilled Turkey Breast
2 Tbs. fresh thyme
2 Tbs. fresh rosemary
1 Tbs. lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c. olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Turkey breast, boned and skinned
Put everything (except the turkey of course!) in a jar and shake well. Pour the marinade over the turkey and allow to sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours, turning a couple times for even marinating.
Grill over medium heat until internal temperature is 165 degrees, times will vary depending on size of meat.
