This method produces all the good looks and moist flavor you dream of in a Thanksgiving turkey. Make sure you show this beauty off at the table before you carve it. Garnish your serving platter with fresh herb sprigs and citrus wedges.

I am a little confused on the cooking time you provided. What does it mean 11/3 to 13/4? Is not cooking a turkey based on its weight determine the number of minutes per pound? I agree with the meat thermometer into the thigh avoiding the bone for accurate temperature reading. I might be incorrect but I thought the cooking time of say 15 or 20 minutes per pound Xs 11 lb Turkey equals 2.75 hours based on 15minutes/ pound and 3.667 hours for 20 minutes/pound cooking. Does your 11/3 to 13/4 translate to 2.1 hrs? Curious.

I picked all my fresh herbs because it's going to freeze all next week and used a combination of "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme" For the aromatics I used lemon only. This is a wonderful recipe!!! So moist and flavorful. This will be my go-to turkey recipe from now on - no more brining for me! Clean-up was easy too!

I was hosting Thanksgiving last year for some family members who really need to watch what they eat (sodium, fat content,etc) . I decided to try this recipe and trick them into eating healthier this holiday. I got absolutely RAVE reviews, despite the fact that they caught me in the act of making a healthier version! I'm going to use this recipe again this year!
