Take your turkey from the fridge 1-2 hrs before you want to cook it, to allow it to come to room temperature. Pre-heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Place a quartered lemon, half the peeled garlic bulb and springs of rosemary under the wire rack towards the edges.
Place two halved lemons and half of the peeled garlic bulb inside the cavity of the bird along with the onion and sage.
Now place the turkey into a roasting tin on top of the wire rack. With the one remaining lemon, zest & juice this and cover the bird and season generously. Spray the whole turkey with a good amount of low calorie cooking spray.
Wrap the tin in good quality tin foil, leaving space around the turkey. Here you are creating the perfect environment for the turkey to steam in it's juices.
Place in the centre of the oven and bast the turkey with its own juices every 30 minutes.
For the final 30 minutes remove the tin foil and turn up the oven to 200c/fan 180c gas/6 until golden all over.
Essential resting time
For the best ever Christmas Turkey you really do need to allow the bird to rest for up to 1 hour. Reuse your foil to create a tent allowing your turkey to rest, before carving.
Don't forget to remove the skin before eating to keep this delicious turkey syn free.
