1 (7 1/2-pound) bone-in turkey breast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
2 oranges, thinly sliced
2 lemons, thinly sliced
Vegetable cooking spray
1 large onion, quartered
3 cups Riesling


Sprinkle turkey breast evenly with salt and pepper.

Stir together butter, rosemary, and sage. Loosen skin from turkey without detaching it; spread butter mixture under skin. Arrange one-fourth of orange and lemon slices over butter mixture. Gently pull skin over fruit. Coat with cooking spray. Place turkey in an aluminum foil-lined baking pan coated with cooking spray. Place onion and remaining orange and lemon slices in pan. Drizzle with wine.

Bake at 325° for 2 hours and 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 170°, basting every 30 minutes. Cover loosely with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray to prevent excessive browning after 1 hour and 30 minutes, if necessary. Serve with Cranberry Salsa.
