Cooking boneless turkey breast in the oven is a simple task, but you need to know when to take it out of the oven and how long it will take for it to cook. Here’s how:
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2: Place your boneless turkey breast on a rack in a roasting pan.
Step 3: Cover with aluminum foil and bake until done. You can tell the turkey is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted into its thickest part registers 165 F (74 C). This will take anywhere between 20 minutes at this temperature and 45 minutes if you lower it slightly. If at any point during cooking time, remove foil; drizzle with olive oil and roast uncovered for 5 more minutes or until top begins to brown slightly).
How Long To Cook Boneless Turkey Breast In Oven
How long you need to cook a boneless turkey breast depends on the size of your bird, as well as whether or not it has been brined and/or injected with a marinade.
To determine how long to cook your turkey, use this simple formula:
- Take the weight of your turkey (in pounds) and multiply by 1.5 for medium-rare doneness, or 2 for well done
- Add 30 minutes for every pound over 8 pounds
Steps to Follow
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, then place the turkey breast in a baking pan.
- Pour some olive oil on top of the turkey, followed by salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon each). Rub it all over with your hands until completely coated with spices, then place in oven for 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F when tested with a meat thermometer placed at its thickest point
Boneless turkey breast cooking time.
The cooking time depends on the size of your boneless turkey breast. A medium-sized turkey breast will take about 2 hours to cook, while a large one will need about 3 hours. You can use a meat thermometer to check doneness; it should read 160°F when done. If you want it cooked more or less, wrap it in foil and continue baking until done (that’s why we recommend using a smaller turkey breast).
If you want your turkey to be more tender, add liquid such as stock or broth during roasting so that there’s extra moisture inside the meat while it cooks–this will help keep all those little proteins from sticking together too much!
