How To Season And Prepare Your Turkey Breast For Grilling?

In this section, I’ll go over some tips on how to season and prepare your turkey breast for grilling. By pursuing these tips, you can be sure to end up with delicious and juicy grilled turkey breast. Also, isn’t it a great idea to try out some grilled turkey recipes?

1. Choose The Right Turkey Breast:

When it comes to grilling, you can choose a turkey breast that’s not too thick or too thin. If the turkey breast is too thick, it will take forever to cook through. And if it is too thin, it will dry out quickly. Aim for a turkey breast that’s about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.

2. Season The Turkey Breast:

Once you’ve chosen the right turkey breast, it’s time to season it. You can use any type of condiment you like, but I suggest using a simple blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. This will give the turkey breast a nice flavor without overwhelming it.

3. Prepare The Grill:

Before you start grilling, you need to prepare the grill. If you’re using a gas grill, preheat it to medium-high heat. If you’re using a charcoal grill, light the coals and let them burn until they’re covered in white ash.

4. Grill The Turkey Breast:

Once the grill is hot, it is time to start grilling! Place the turkey breast on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

5. Let The Turkey Breast Rest:

Once the turkey breast is cooked through, transfer it to a plate and let it rest for 5 minutes. Allow the juices to redistribute by, resulting in a juicier turkey breast.
