Step 1: Preheat oven and prepare breast Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Step 2: Prepare the breast Use your fingers to separate part of the skin from the meat to create a pocket on each side of the breast. Spread butter on the meat under the skin. Tip Be careful not to rip the skin off entirely -- you need pockets to contain the butter which will help to keep the meat moist. Step 3: Season the breast Season the breast with fresh ground pepper and salt. Be sure to spread the salt and pepper evenly on all sides. Tip Wash your hands after touching the turkey breast. Step 4: Sear the breast Spread a thin layer of oil in a skillet and place it over medium heat. When the oil is hot, place the breast in the skillet, skin side down. Cover the skillet with a splatter screen, and sear the breast for five minutes, until the skin is golden brown. Step 5: Put the breast in the oven Use the tongs to place the breast, skin side up, on a wire rack on top of a foil-lined baking sheet. Step 6: Place in the oven Place the baking sheet with the breast in the oven and cook for 50 to 60 minutes, until the internal temperature measures 160 degrees on your meat thermometer. Step 7: Take out and serve Remove your turkey from the oven, let it sit for five to 10 minutes, and then dig in. Did You Know? Roughly 265 million turkeys are raised each year in the U.S.
