How Long to Cook a Turkey Breast
The cooking time for a turkey breast is typically two hours or less, depending on the size of the breast. The general rule of thumb is to roast a whole turkey breast for 20 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Roasting a turkey breast, instead of a whole turkey, is a great option if you want to save time or if your family doesn't really like dark meat. Just make sure to use a meat thermometer to check that the thickest part of the breast meat has reached at least 165 degrees before you serve it.
