Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
To get the perfect taste of the turkey breast, marinate it one day before you cook it.
step 2
In a large bowl, place Water (1 cup), then add the Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp), Salt (1 Tbsp), Garlic (4 cloves), Black Peppercorns (7), Whole Allspice (5), Fresh Thyme (5 sprigs), and Fresh Parsley (2 Tbsp) and whisk. Try to be a bit rough to bruise the herbs so they release their flavors.

step 3
Add Water (3 cups) and mix well. Be sure to have the water chilled as we don’t want to add the turkey to a warm brine.
step 4
Place the Turkey Breasts (5 lb) in a larger ziploc bag or container with a lid and pour the brine into​ it. Seal and place the fridge overnight. Massage the turkey breast in the brine a couple of​ times to make sure it’s brined evenly.

step 5
The next day, preheat your oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F). Remove the turkey from the brine, give it a rinse under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels.
step 6
Line your roasting tray with the Celery (2 stalks) and Carrot (1). Place the head of Garlic (1 head) and Onion (1/2) on the baking dish as well.

step 7
Now place the turkey breast on top of the vegetable bed and drizzle on the Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) to coat the skin and finish off with the Freshly Ground Black Pepper (as needed).
step 8
Finally, tuck the remaining sprigs of Fresh Thyme (2 sprigs) under the turkey breast and pour on the Chicken Stock (1 cup). Feel free to sprinkle a little salt on top of the breast when you add the black pepper.

step 9
Roast (covered) for 2 hours.
step 10
Remove the foil and crank the heat up to 218 degrees C (425 degrees F) to develop that lovely golden color. It may take between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the breast you use.
step 11
Allow it to rest a bit before slicing, then serve and enjoy! Makes great leftovers for sandwiches and salads.
