Herb Stuffed Turkey Breast

If you like the turkey then this healthy lunch idea is perfect for you. The combination of turkey breast stuffed with herb and garlic makes this meal simply delicious.

Ingredients:

  •  2 turkey breasts, boneless, skinless (about 1 pound each)*
  • 1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra olive oil

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Brush with oil.

2. In a small bowl, put parsley, garlic, sage, and olive oil and mix to combine. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

3. It’s time to put the meat. Lay the turkey breast flat on a cutting board, smooth side facing up. Lay a knife (if you have a large one work the best), parallel to the board, against the center of the breast. Slice lengthwise, essentially cutting the breast in half to make it flatter. Don’t cut all the way through— leave the other long side attached, so you can open the breast like a magazine and lay it flat.

4. Spread half of the herb mixture on each breast. Spread over 3/4 of the flattened breasts.

5. Starting at the side of the breast with the filling, roll the breast lengthwise and place on the oiled baking sheet, seam-side down. (you can secure the seam with toothpicks.)

6. Brush the tops of the breasts with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

7. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the center temperature of the roll reads 165 degrees.

Note: Just make sure the meat is fully cooked and showing no pink!
