When you look for turkey recipes online the
temperature you cook the turkey breast at can range anywhere from 250°
I find that 350°
works best for a turkey breast with back and rib portions and will produce a
perfectly cooked turkey breast.
1 (3-pound) Turkey Breast with back and rib portions
¼ cup water
Stock plus enough water to make 2 cups
1 teaspoon chicken base
¼ cup butter
1 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
turkey breast in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika, poultry
seasoning and garlic salt. Drizzle with about two teaspoons of olive oil.Place in oven and bake for 1 ½ to 2 hours or until
internal temperature reaches 170° on a meat thermometer.
When turkey is done place it on a plate and return to warm oven after
turning off the heat. This keeps the turkey warm while making the gravy.
Add ¼ cup water to the baking dish and use a fork to loosen all the
bits in the pan. Pour this stock into a 2 cup glass measuring cup. Add enough
water to make two cups. Stir in chicken base.
In a 10-inch frying pan, melt the butter and fry the mushrooms for a few
minutes. Use a whisk to stir in the flour then add the two cups of stock all at
once. Whisk until thickened.
Slice the turkey breast and serve with mushroom gravy.
