  • Place your turkey into a baking pan. Cover your turkey with oil. Generously sprinkle on the spices. Use your hands to rub the spices all over the turkey, be sure to get under and inside the turkey also.
  • Cut butter into slices and tuck under the skin of the turkey breast.
  • Prepare the oven bag according to instructions on the package. Place the turkey into the oven bag; then place turkey into the roasting pan.
