Tried this recipe this year and it turned out great. I did use homemade turkey broth instead of water, and as others suggested, lifted the breast skin to spread the oil/herb mixture. I did prepare the turkey the night before which allowed the meat to get marinated with the oil mixture. The next morning I rebasted the turkey and discovered that it was much easier to baste, now that the oil/herb mixture was refrigerated. The night before, the mixture just seemed to slide down. However, when it was cold, it really spread so much easier and stuck to the skin better. My suggestion is to make the oil/herb mixture the day before. I also suggest adding paprika to the mix and increasing the quantity of herbs.
