How long should you bake a turkey breast?
A fully thawed Turkey breast should bake for like 15-20 minutes per pound at 350 in the oven. You should always check to make sure it is done before you serve it.
They say when you defrost a Chicken, Turkey to deforst it breast down. All the juices will run into the breast to make it nice and juicy.
When roasting a turkey breast you should use a shallow baking pan for best results as this allows the air to flow all around the turkey breast. A 5lb breast should be cooked at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for between 1 and a half to 2 and a quarter hours. The breast should reach an optimal internal temperature of 170 degrees fahrenheit.
Yes, as long as it is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. I stick two probe thermometers into the turkey- one in the breast, and one in the stuffing. Cooking safely will help keep your guests from getting a case of food poisoning (NOT pleasant)...It's possible to make stuffing, but then bake it separate from the turkey (use turkey stock to compensate for extra moisture)
