- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder

Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
Place turkey breast skin side up on the rack of a roasting pan, or into a lightly greased 9×13 pan
In a small bowl, stir together olive oil paprika, oregano, rosemary, salt, thyme, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder to form a paste.
Loosen the skin with your finger and spoon some of the spice mixture underneath the skin.
Smooth it out to cover as much of the meat as possible.
Rub the remaining spice mixture on top of the turkey breast skin.
Roast in the preheated oven for approx. 20 minutes per kilo, until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 71 degrees.
Measure the temperature in the center of the thickest part of the breast.
Actual cooking time will depend on the size of your turkey breast.
Use a meat thermometer for accuracy.

Let rest for 15 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 74 degrees.
Then slice and serve.
