Grilled Boneless Turkey Breast
This recipe for a grilled boneless turkey breast is both simple and flavorful. The secret is to keep the temperature low during cooking.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 2to 3 pounds boneless turkey breast (string-trussed)
- 2tablespoons butter, cold
- Salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Step 1Gather the ingredients and preheat the grill.
Step 2Cut butter into 8 quarter-inch wide slivers measuring an inch long. Push any extra butter into the folds created when the breast is wrapped. Salt and pepper all over.
Step 3Make 8 half-inch slits in the top skin of the turkey breasts and slip butter into slits.
Step 4Cook for 5 minutes at high heat, then adjust grill to medium heat. Grill until the internal temperature reaches 175 F/80 C, about 25 minutes.
Step 5Remove and let cool 20 minutes before carving. If you need drippings for gravy, set a drip pan on bars or bricks under the rack, and remove it after the first 30 minutes or else it will burn off.
Step 6Serve and enjoy.
