How Long Should I Cook My Split Turkey Breast?

In Ontario... I have looked and looked for just a regular frozen turkey breast. I found turkey breasts in a box, stuffed * ICK* !!!

But after going to many many stores, I gave up.. but I found a fresh split turkey breast... so that will have to do. Can't stuff it.. but oh well

How long do you think this has to be cooked? hmm its about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds maybe. Would you still cook it at 325 degrees?

The best thing to do is cook to temp. Get a probe thermometer and cook until it done to your liking. It is really hard to tell someone how long to cook a piece of meat because every piece of meat is different and every oven is different and conditions vary. All of these factors contribute to cooking by time being unreliable.

GB is right. You should cook it to 165F internal temperature.

Also, you can make stuffing and bake it in a pan next to the half breast. If you want moist stuffing, add a little extra broth to the pan and bake it covered. If you want some crispiness on top, bake it uncovered.
