How long do you cook a roasted turkey breast?
Roast this 7 lb. turkey breast in a 350-degree F oven for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours. A good rule of thumb is to roast a bone-in turkey breast in a 350-degree F oven for 20 minutes per pound. For example, a 5 pound turkey breast will take just one hour and 40 minutes to cook.
What temp should turkey breast be cooked to?
You know that your turkey is done when an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted into the thickest and meatiest areas of the breast. If the skin is getting too dark, cover the breast loosely with aluminum foil. When the turkey is done, cover with foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with the pan juices spooned over the turkey.
