On what side should I cook my turkey breast?
Cooking your turkey breast-side down will prevent the breast from becoming too dried out since cooking on that side makes the breast more protected from the heat. And to have a whole turkey cooked more evenly, it is recommended to cook your turkey stuffing separately.
Another way of keeping your turkey from drying out is to cover it while cooking. And to achieve that crispy skin, remove the cover 30 minutes before your turkey is cooked. Always use a meat thermometer to make sure your turkey is done.
How can I keep my turkey breast moist?
Using a wire rack over a pan that has liquid in it will help keep your turkey breast juicy. The steam will keep it moist and will add flavor to it. You can use white wine or stock with oil or butter for the liquid.
It is also possible to keep your turkey breast moist even after cooking. Cover it with plastic wrap and press it down so that there will be no air pockets. This will make sure that the moisture in your turkey breast will be retained.
