  1. Loosen skin from turkey with fingers, leaving skin attached along bottom edges. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic and seasonings. Spread under turkey skin. Combine remaining lemon juice and oil; set aside. Place turkey on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees, basting every 15-20 minutes with lemon mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes. Discard skin before carving.

I loved this recipe. I substituted lemon pepper for the spices and roasted it on a bed of chopped carrots, celery and onion to help add flavor to the gravy. Awesome!

Ok. The overpowering lemon juice flavor ruined it. I liked the idea of using an herb marinade so if we make it again I'd use less lemon juice & maybe more of the garlic, thyme & sage.

My whole family gave this two thumbs up. With a picky husband, a three year old and a one year old, this is no small feat. I used a foil tent over the turkey for the first 1 1/2, then cooked fo...

This was the most AWESOME turkey we have ever had! It was soooo tender and moist. The seasonings and lemon juice are a great combination! Followed the recipe to the letter except for the most im...

We thought this was delicious! The only thing that I changed was that I cooked it in a bag for 1 1/2-2 hours and didn't baste. Will definitely make again!

Couldn't be any easier unless you ordered out! The flavor was good and the meat was moist. We enjoyed this very much.
