Kittencal's Moist Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
160 mins (prep 10, cooking 150)
9 ingredients
6-8 servings
Cooking time is only approximate for a 6-pound bone-in turkey breast, for a larger breast cooking time will need to be adjusted, whatever the size of turkey breast roast until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F, for perfect doneness a meat thermometer (instant or regular) should be used --- for the very best flavor a turkey breast with the skin left on is an absolute must and the bone left in would be another plus --- don't forget to save the pan juices to make your favorite gravy or see my Kittencal's Easy No-Fail Make Anytime Turkey Gravy --- a 6-pound turkey breast should feed 4-6 people if you are serving more I suggest to make two or even three depending on how many people you are feeding, you may make all the breasts in the same roasting pan --- NOTE for the best flavor and tenderness it is strongly advised to use a fresh only turkey breast not previously frozen then thawed.
