Remove giblets and neck from turkey; set aside.
Rinse turkey; pat dry.

Place onion quarters in neck cavity.
Lift wingtips up and over back; tuck under bird.

Sprinkle giblets and vegetables with remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary.
Combine chicken broth and next 3 ingredients in a saucepan; cook until thoroughly heated.
Pour mixture over turkey.
Cover with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil without letting foil touch turkey.
Fold edges of foil together, and crimp to form an airtight seal.
Bake at 425° for 1 1/2 hours on lowest rack in oven.
Cut a length-wise slit in top of foil; fold sides of foil back.
