Ingredients:  
1 (3 pound) turkey breast with skin
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup chicken stock
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix 1/4 cup butter, garlic, paprika, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Place turkey breast with skin side up into a roasting pan. Loosen skin with your fingers; brush half the butter mixture over the turkey breast and underneath the skin. Reserve remaining butter mixture. Tent turkey breast loosely with aluminum foil. Roast in the preheated oven for 1 hour; baste turkey breast with remaining butter mixture. Return to oven and roast until the juices run clear and a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast, not touching bone, reads 165 degrees, about 30 more minutes. Let turkey breast rest 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

While turkey is resting, transfer pan drippings to a skillet. Skim off excess grease, leaving about 1 tablespoon in skillet. Place skillet over low heat; pour in chicken stock, scraping any browned bits of food from skillet. In a small jar, add 1/3 cup cold water, and flour and shake until smooth. Slowly add to chicken stock and whisk until smooth. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened.

Makes 6 servings.

Personal Notes:
Nana always made sure there was a turkey breast or a roast beef cooked and ready to eat whenever we came home to visit. She had often made both and no matter what time of day or night it was, she would insist we make up a plate!
