  • 4   
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 1   teaspoon 
    snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1   teaspoon 
    snipped fresh thyme
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    ground black pepper
  • 1  2 3/4 - 3 1/4 pound 
    turkey breast portion with bone, skin removed
    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3   cups 
    tiny red potatoes, quartered (about 1 pound)
  • 2   cups 
    baby carrots with tops trimmed and halved lengthwise (about 8 ounces)
  • 2   cups 
    white and/or red pearl onions trimmed and halved (about 8 ounces)
  • 1   tablespoon 
    olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine parsley, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Set aside 1 tablespoon of the herb mixture.
Place turkey breast portion, bone side down, on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the remaining herb mixture evenly over turkey breast portion; rub in with your fingers. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine potatoes, carrots, and pearl onions; add the reserved 1 tablespoon herb mixture and the olive oil and toss until vegetables are coated. Arrange vegetables around turkey in roasting pan.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Roast for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours more or until juices run clear, turkey is no longer pink (170 degrees F), and vegetables are tender, stirring vegetables once.
Transfer turkey to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before carving. Trim meat from bone. Reserve and store* 10 ounces of the turkey (about 2 cups) and 2 cups of the vegetables for the Turkey and Bean Soup. Serve the remaining turkey with the remaining vegetables. Makes 4 servings, plus enough reserved turkey and vegetables for Turkey and Bean Soup
  • * Place the reserved cooked turkey and vegetables in an airtight container. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
