Oven Roasted Turkey Breast with Onions

I first made this dish about 3 years ago and apparently I had a photo of it on my computer, but did not have the recipe.  This one came out a little different looking but I think I used different seasonings the last time.  It's a great way to curb the turkey craving anytime of year.  Having turkey sandwiches the next day is a bonus.

Having turkey sandwiches the next day is a bonus.

You can use whatever size bone-in turkey breast you'd like. Figure approximately 15-20 minutes of cooking time per 1/2 pound. Always use the meat thermometer to verify the temperature of the meat is 170F before serving.
