1 whole turkey
1 large lemon, cut into halves
Sprig of rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until it is completely coated
Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;
Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up. This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast. Season skin of turkey to your preference, place sprig of rosemary into the chicken.
Cover and place in oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the bird.
If you’ve followed these steps correctly, your turkey should look like the one in the picture.
