Here's an easy, reliable way to ensure a moist and flavorful turkey...simply pour the lemon and herb-seasoned chicken stock over the bird, then baste with the pan drippings while it roasts. Served with prepared turkey gravy, it just couldn't be easier!


  • 1 3/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Stock
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 whole turkey (about 14 pounds)
  • 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) Campbell’s® Turkey Gravy


  • Tips

    • Alternate Preparation: The turkey may be roasted in a Reynolds® Oven Bag, following the package directions, pouring the stock mixture over the turkey before closing the bag.
  • Step 1

    Stir the stock, lemon juice, basil, thyme and black pepper in a medium bowl.

  • Step 2

    Roast the turkey according to the package directions, basting occasionally with the stock mixture during roasting. Let the turkey stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Discard any remaining stock mixture.

  • Step 3

    Heat the gravy in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat until it's hot and bubbling. Serve the gravy with the turkey.
