What You'll Need

1 cup Swanson® Chicken Stock
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 turkey (12 to 14 pounds)
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 bunch fresh sage leaves
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

How to Make It

  • 1

    Stir the stock and black pepper in a small bowl.

  • 2

    Remove the package of giblets and neck from the turkey cavity. Rinse the turkey with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.

  • 3

    Loosen the skin carefully from the breast meat, using your fingers. Place the lemon and sage under the skin. Tie the ends of the drumsticks together.

  • 4

    Place the turkey, breast-side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Brush the turkey with the butter and then the stock mixture. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, not touching the bone.

  • 5

    Roast at 325°F. for 3 hours or until the thermometer reads 165°F., basting occasionally with the stock mixture. Begin checking for doneness after 2 1/2 hours of the roasting time. Let the turkey stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
