Juicy Roasted Turkey Breast

1 turkey breast with bone or turkey breast without bone
1 medium onion
2 whole carrots
2 stalks of celery, halved
Olive oil
1 tablespoon ground lemon
Black pepper to taste
1 and 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika


Place the onion, carrots, and celery in the bottom of a roasting pan. Put the turkey breast on top of the vegetables and brush with olive oil. Combine spices in a small bowl. Rub the spices over turkey. Roast at 400 degrees for 5 minutes and then turn the oven down to 325 degrees. Roast until the turkey breast reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Place the turkey on a serving platter and let it stand for 15 minutes before carving. Prepare gravy by adding water to the pan with the vegetables. Allow everything to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the fat and thicken with flour or cornstarch.

Enjoy!
