Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Herbed Roast Turkey Breast

Yield 10 Servings
Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1 bone-in turkey breast (5 to 6 pounds)
5 tsp lemon juice
1 TBSP olive oil
1 to 2 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic salt (although I personally would use garlic powder)
1 medium onion cut into wedges
1 celery rib cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup white wine OR chicken broth

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

With fingers, carefully loosen the skin from both sides of turkey breast. Combine lemon juice and oil; brush under the skin. Combine pepper, rosemary, thyme and garlic; rub over turkey. Place onion and celery in a 3-quart baking dish. Top with turkey breast, skin side up. Pour wine (or chicken broth) into the dish. Bake, uncovered, for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees, basting every 30 minutes with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns to quickly) Cover and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
