    Samuel, that stuffed turkey breast recipe I posted in your Xmas Dinner discussion topic (did you look at it? it looks pretty good) says that, stuffed, it's about 60 minutes per kilogram. Now, that's a boneless stuffed breast. When I roast a turkey breast, I do it about the same as the whole bird: 20 mins per lb, at 325F. That's with the bone in; boneless, if that's what you have, would likely cook quicker.

    What recipe are you making?

    Well...thas the problem really, I don't have a recipe... The breast is marinading in a garlic/rosemary brine at the moment... I was just thinking of shoving it in the oven in a pot for 20 minutes uncoveres, basting it, puting it back in for another 20, covered...then another 20 uncovered... I guess I'll just play it by ear icon_smile.gif

    You should be able to insert a fork into the thickest part of the meat and have it come out easy without lifting the breast from the pan when you remove the fork. Also check the juice that runs after piercing and see if it is running clear. If it still has a pinkish color, continue cooking a little longer.

    I'm guessing 45 min to 1 hour but no more than that. Check the juice thing. And you did brine it, right? You dont want turkey jerky! Di
