This easy, foolproof recipe yields moist, fork-tender turkey that melts in your mouth. I created it on a whim and was amazed at how yummy it turned out.
Fresh lemon juice helps tenderize the meat and the leftover rinds act as a base to prop the turkey. I add more lemon flavor with lemon pepper seasoning.
Herbs are strictly personal. For this recipe, I recommend Penzey’s Northwoods, a mix of salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, rosemary, garlic & chipotle. Paprika is a must to help give a good color to the surface of the meat. I throw in fresh rosemary any time I have it; I love rosemary on fowl.
