Low Carb Recipe: Lemon and Herb Roasted Turkey Sandwich

Low Carb Recipe: Lemon and Herb Roasted Turkey Sandwich
We had a couple of blissful days with temperatures in the 70s. For Upper Michigan, this was quite an event. Now the temperature dropped back into the 40s. Oh well, despite this little setback, spring is here to stay.

To celebrate the warmth of the months ahead, I put together a low carb recipe book with dishes for family and friends to enjoy on a warm sunny day. If you live in Texas, Florida, Spain, Italy, or Mexico – you might as well start cooking now. So dig out the checkered table cloth, Grandma’s picnic basket, scroll down and download 30 low carb recipes. No strings attached.

Lemon and Herb Roasted Turkey Sandwich
What you need:
  • 1/4 c lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp thyme
  • 2 tbsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 (4-5 lb.) turkey breast
  • 2 (16 oz) cans low sodium chicken broth
  • 8 slices of low carb bread
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Mayonnaise
How to make it:
  • Wash and pat dry the turkey breast
  • Stir together the lemon juice, thyme, sage, pepper, and salt.
  • Baste the outside of the turkey with the lemon juice mixture.
  • Pour the chicken broth into the bottom of a roasting pan.
  • Place the turkey breast into the pan.
  • Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees and allow the oven to preheat.
  • Bake the turkey 1 hour 35 minutes basting with the lemon juice mixture about every 30 minutes or so.
  • The turkey is done when the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.
  • When done cover the turkey with aluminum foil and allow standing 20 minutes before cutting.
  • Remove the aluminum foil and the skin from the turkey breast.
  • Carve the turkey into nice size slices.
  • Spread each piece of bread with the mayonnaise.
  • Place a lettuce leaf on 4 bread slices.

You can use chicken breast instead of turkey. Roast the chicken 20 minutes per pound or until internal temperature reaches 175 degrees.
