In a bowl stir together the oil, sage, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Remove the legs, thighs and wings, from the turkey (reserve for Round 2 Recipe). Season the breast well with salt and pepper. Rub the herb oil all over turkey, making sure to get under the skin as well. Place on a rack in a roasting pan, cover, and let sit at room temperature to marinate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the over to 350 degrees F.
Uncover, pour the broth into the bottom of the pan, and roast the turkey breast until it is almost cooked. A thermometer inserted in the thickest part should read 110 to 120 degrees F, about 55-60 minutes. Increase the over temperature to 450 degrees F and cook until the skin is browned and a thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 160–165 degrees F, about 15-20 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
