Remove the thawed turkey from the fridge 1 hour before roasting, to let it come to room temperature. Adjust your oven rack so the turkey will sit in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Make a spicy herb butter by combining room temperature butter, blended kpakposhito, minced garlic, pepper, one tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary, one tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, MAGGI chicken. (You’ll use the remaining fresh herbs for stuﬃng inside the cavity of the turkey).
Season the cavity of the turkey with 1 MAGGI chicken and black pepper. Stuﬀ it with the quartered lemon, onion, pineapples and the rest of herbs. Use your fingers to loosen and lift the skin above the breasts (on the top of the turkey) and smooth a few tablespoons of the herb butter underneath. Tuck the wings of the turkey underneath the turkey and set the turkey on a roasting rack inside a roasting pan.
Microwave the remaining herb butter mixture for 30 seconds (Not completely melted--just softened). Use a basting brush to brush the remaining herb butter all over the outside of the turkey, legs and wings. Roast at 180 degrees for about 13-15 minutes per pound, or until internal temperature reaches about 165 degrees. Remove the turkey from the oven then tent it with foil, and let it rest on the counter. It will continue cooking under the foil.
Check the turkey about halfway through cooking, and once the skin gets golden brown, cover the top of the turkey with tinfoil, to protect the breast meat from overcooking. Alternately, you could start cooking the turkey with it tented in foil, then during the last hour or so of cooking you can take the foil oﬀ to let the turkey brown.
Allow turkey to rest for 20-30 minutes before carving and adding more water, if necessary, until golden. Slice and serve with fried rice.
