NEXT  Preheat oven to 325°F. Place vegetables in large skillet or roasting pan and set turkey breast on top of vegetables. Brush skin with oil and season with freshly ground black pepper.

NEXT  Roast turkey breast on oven rack in the bottom third of oven until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast registers 160°F, about 2-2 ½ hours, depending on size of turkey. Allow turkey to sit for 20 minutes before carving.

**You can brine turkey the day before and place in refrigerator, uncovered, for up to 24 hours before cooking.
