Holiday: Roasted Turkey Breasts

Ingredients
6 tablespoons butter, cubed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced green onion (can use chives)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 boneless skinless turkey breast half (2 pounds; if larger [4lbs], cook longer and test internal temperature often; may take up to 3.5 hours)

Directions
In a small saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil; remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
Place turkey breast on a rack in a greased shallow roasting pan. Spoon some of the butter mixture over the top. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours or until juices run clear and a thermometer reads 170°, basting often with butter mixture.
Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
