Turkey Breast with Gravy



Oven 325 F

1 whole or half turkey breast with bone

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp Provence or Italian herb mix

Rinse the turkey breast with cold water. Place in the center of a large piece of aluminum foil.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with herbs.


Fold up the foil over the turkey and seal tightly all around. Place in a shallow baking pan. Bake a whole turkey breast at 325 F for 2 ½ hours. Bake a half breast for about 2 hours. Insert a meat thermometer directly through the foil to test for doneness.


Remove from the oven and let stand without opening the foil for 15 minutes.


For the gravy:

Swanson’s chicken broth (if needed)

¼ cup flour

½ cup hot water

1 tsp salt

Pinch of pepper

Open one end of the foil and pour the broth into a medium saucepan. If you have less than 3 cups of broth, add chicken broth.


Place the hot water in a tall drinking glass. Add the flour and stir vigorously with a fork until smooth. Add more water if needed to the consistency of a milkshake.


Bring the broth to a full boil. Add the salt & pepper. Use a wire whisk to quickly mix the gravy while slowly adding the flour paste. Keep mixing fast until the gravy comes to a boil, then turn off the heat.
