3 tbsp lemon juice, divided
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 tsp dried thyme
3/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp rubbed sage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using your fingers, loosen the skin but leave attached along bottom edge.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, the garlic and remaining spices; spread under the turkey skin. Combine the remaining lemon juice and oil; set aside.
Place the turkey breast on a rack in a shallow pan and 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 the lemon/oil mixture.
Remove from oven and allow to stand for 10 minutes. Remove skin and discard before carving.
