This is a weekly staple in my Paleo kitchen. A two to three pound bone-in, skin-on free range turkey breast lends itself to several breakfasts, lunches, dinners and meals between and is extremely versatile!
  • 3-pound free range turkey breast, skin on, bone in
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • ½ lemon, thinly sliced and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to broil
  2. Loosen the skin from the turkey breast and pat dry with paper towels
  3. Stuff the rosemary sprigs and lemon slices under the skin and pull skin back over
  4. Rub coconut oil all over the skin
  5. Season with pepper
  6. Broil, skin side up, in glass or ceramic dish for 10 - 15 minutes, until browned
  7. Change oven to bake at 450
  8. Bake roughly one hour and fifteen minutes longer, turning over halfway
  9. Check to make sure internal temperature reaches 150F
  10. Remove from oven and tent with foil; let sit 15 minutes
  11. Check that temperature has reached 160F
  12. Serve with your favorite veggies while hot, then use leftovers the next two days for any of your Paleo meals!
