Heat oven to 325. In a saucepan, combine butter, lemon juice, minced onion, soy sauce, accent, pepper, thyme, sage, and marjoram. Warm until all ingredients are blended. Place the turkey breast in a 13 x 9 foil-lined baking dish. Pour sauce over the turkey breast. Cover with dish with foil. Cook at 325 degrees for 2 1/2 hours.

Drizzle remaining sauce over the turkey slices before serving.
