Notes

Recipe for 2 bone-in turkey breasts

Cooking tips:

  • You can follow the same recipe to prepare a boneless turkey breast, however it will cook much faster and might not be as moist.
  • The herbs and spices in this recipe give the turkey great flavor, but if you want to go the extra mile, mix up my One Spoon Dry Rub to use instead.
  • When cooking large cuts of meat like this, I try to allow them to come to room temperature before cooking.
