"Turkey is a year round favorite at our house, this easy to make savory baste for turkey and chicken is one I often use for special occasions. A great find from a small cookbook of savory recipes, makes for a wonderful aroma that tantalizes, the turkey absolutely delicious. Perfect for the holiday table, or anytime you have family and friends gather."
In two small bowls measure out spices, dividing evenly
In a small pot over medium-low heat slowly melt the butter and the lemon juice (or a few seconds in a mircowave)
Add half the spices and mix, use as a baste for your turkey and chicken
Use the rest of the dry spice mix sprinkled on the turkey or chicken using amount to suit your taste
Note, it is suggested to put some of the baste under the skin for extra flavour

Made as written for Billboard Tag - I introduced my now DH & a grp of Icelanders to the Thanksgiving meal when they were in the US for spec training. After I came to Iceland to marry Siggi, we agreed to share the tradition annually as a 4-family grp. The date can vary, but the event is always hosted by us & we had extras this yr. To be sure we had enough turkey for the meal & leftovers for all, I cooked an extra turkey breast in my crock-pot & oven-roasted 4 skin-on legs using your recipe. The legs were clearly the best, very tender & flavorful. The skinless breast was unusually dry, tended to crumble w/slicing & had a strong lemon flavor (my pers view as no one complained & Siggi didn't agree w/me). The gravy was great! Your recipe will be used again for basting skin-on oven-roasted turkey or chicken & I'm confident the result will be excellent. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
