Christmas Turkey Breast

A roasted turkey breast is a great addition to your Christmas table. It suits smaller families who don’t want to bother with a whole turkey or if you prefer just a taste of some white meat along with other mains. This is really simple to do and despite not using any butter under the skin, this dairy-free option is still beautifully tender.

Christmas Turkey Breast

Prep Time

10 mins

Cook Time

2 hrs




  • 1 kg Turkey Breast
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 3 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F and place the turkey breast skin side up in a roasting dish.
  2. Mix oil, garlic, paprika, Italian seasoning, salt & pepper in a bowl.
  3. Place the turkey breast in the roasting pan, and pour the oil mix over the turkey breast and rub it in to disperse the flavour evenly.
  4. Using tin foil, place a tent foil cover loosely over the breast and roast for 1 hour. Baste the turkey every 30 minutes with the oil and juice mix and continue to roast until juices run clear - approx 2 hours.
  5. Let turkey breast rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving on a platter for guests to serve themselves. Feel free to make a gravy with the pan juices if you desire.
