In the last 20 years, I have tried every possible Turkey recipe, from deep-fried, to grilled – with stuffing, and without. What I have discovered is that simpler is better!
My secret is that olive oil pairs perfectly with turkey. It helps to lock in moisture, brown the skin to a deep bronze shade, and most of all it adds so much flavor! The goal is to make the breast meat as juicy as possible – no one wants a dry bird!
It is time to leave the butter in the fridge because here is a healthy, straightforward recipe for a succulent and flavorful Turkey that allows you to put more time and energy into the side dishes, gravy, and sauces (I highly recommend our chimichurri!).
