Perfectly Moist Turkey

Elevate your turkey game with this easy, moist, and flavorful recipe! Say goodbye to the long, tedious process – our secret weapon? Wild Wing Collective Fire Cider! Turkey breasts are also a cinch to roast. There’s no flipping, no basting, no fuss.



INGREDIENTS

  • 3 to 7 pounds

  • 4oz Wild Wing Fire Cider

  • 1 onion roughly chopped

  • 20 cloves of garlic

  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped parsley

  • 4 tablespoon

  • 1 packet Lipton's French Onion Soup Mix

  • 1/2 tsp thyme

  • 1/2 tsp marjoram

  • 1/2 tsp rosemary


DIRECTIONS

  1. Marinate turkey. Place turkey in ziplock with the Fire Cider, removing excess air and let marinate at least 4 hours, 24 hours is best.

  2. Transfer the turkey to a baking dish. Arrange the turkey breast on top of the onion, garlic and parsley in the baking dish. Set aside while the oven heats.

  3. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Arrange a oven rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.

  4. Rub the turkey breast with softened butter mixed with a packet of Lipton's, thyme, marjoram, and rosemary. Pat the skin of the turkey breast dry with paper towels. Rub the turkey breast all over with the butter mixture. If desired, loosen the skin and rub some butter into the meat under the skin as well. Pull the skin to cover the meat as much as possible.

  5. Lower the oven to 350°F and roast the turkey for 1 hour. Place the turkey in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350°F. Roast for 1 hour, then begin checking the temperature.

  6. Check the turkey's temperature. The turkey is done when it reaches 165°F in the thickest part of the breast meat. Start checking after 1 hour of roasting and continue checking every 10 to 15 minutes until the breast is cooked through.

  7. Cover the turkey to prevent over-browning. If the skin over the breast meat begins to brown too darkly toward the end of cooking, cover it with aluminum foil to prevent scorching.

  8. Rest the turkey. When cooked, remove the turkey from the oven and cover it loosely with foil. Let the turkey rest for 15 to 20 minutes; this gives the juices time to redistribute and the turkey time to firm up. (Pour the drippings and juices from the pan into a measuring cup for making gravy!)

  9. Carve the turkey. Transfer the turkey to a clean cutting board. Starting at the breast bone, carve the turkey. Continue carving, keeping your knife as close to the ribs as possible, until the whole breast is carved from the bone; some meat will still be left on the bone. Once no longer attached to the bone, slice the breast crosswise into slices.
