1 stick butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, such as thyme, rosemary, parsley and chives
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper
1 boneless turkey breast


Preheat oven to 350F.

Put butter, garlic, herbs, lemon, salt and pepper in a food processer and pulse until mixed well. Slather the turkey breast with the compound butter, making sure to get plenty under the skin. This can be done in advance, 12 hours or overnight, or 15 minutes before roasting.

Roast for 45-50 minutes, remove when internal temperature reaches 155F. Let rest for 15-20 minutes then slice and serve.
