Turkey is no longer just for Thanksgiving. Today, people everywhere are cooking turkey breasts. Turkey breasts cook in half the time of traditional whole turkeys. In this recipe, we will show you how to cook a turkey breast in half the time you are used to.
Before preparing the turkey breast, rinse in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl soften garlic, butter and your choice of seasoning. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. Place the turkey breast in a large baking pan. Spread the butter mixture over the turkey breast. Make sure the breast is covered completely. After the turkey breast is covered, cover the pan with aluminum foil. This will keep the moisture in and prevent you from having dry turkey. Bake the turkey breast at 350 degrees. Your baking time will depend on the size of the turkey breast. You should bake for 20 minutes per pound. When the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, the turkey breast is done. Remove the pan from the oven and discard the aluminum foil.
For a complete meal, serve with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. Eating turkey breast can increase your immune system and promotes healthy cell division.
