Sheet Pan Roasted Garlic Turkey Breast

1 (3- to 4-pound) bone-in, skin-on turkey breast
5 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 medium heads garlic
2 medium lemons, halved crosswise and seeds removed
2 medium delicata squash (about 2 pounds total)
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Let the turkey sit at room temperature while the oven heats. Arrange 2 racks to divide the oven into thirds and heat to 375F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil and set aside.

Trim any excess skin and fat, but leave the skin covering the turkey breast. Pat dry with paper towels. Brush the turkey all over with 1 tablespoon of the oil, then season all over with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place on one side of a baking sheet, skin-side up.

Peel away the loose, papery, outer layers around each head of garlic. Trim about 1/4 inch off the top of each to expose the tops of the garlic cloves. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the oil over each head of garlic. Wrap each head of garlic with aluminum foil and place on the other side of the baking sheet as the turkey. Place the lemons cut-side up next to the garlic. Place on the lower rack and roast for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.
