Discover the secret to moist and flavorful grilled turkey breast.
2-pound boneless turkey breast half with untorn skin
small lemon, thinly sliced
fresh basil leaves
Olive or vegetable oil
teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
If using charcoal grill, place drip pan directly under grilling area, and arrange coals around edge of firebox. Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. Loosen skin on turkey in 4 or 5 places. Carefully place lemon slices and basil leaves under skin. Rub turkey skin with oil; sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning. Insert barbecue meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of turkey.
Cover and grill turkey, skin side down, over drip pan or over unheated side of gas grill and 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 20 minutes; turn. Cover and grill 35 to 45 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 170°F and juice of turkey is clear when center is cut.
Remove turkey from grill; cover with foil tent and let stand 10 minutes. Slice turkey.
Serve turkey at its juiciest. Cover the turkey with foil and let it rest a few minutes before slicing. This will prevent juices from running out.
Enjoy with a tossed salad.
