Sous Vide Whole Turkey Breast

Brian CampbellCamfam Cookery
My wife loves turkey sandwiches. I make this recipe and chill the cooked whole turkey breast completely then debone it and slice it up. I have found using a meat slicer works best for this job.

Equipment

  • 1 Sous Vide Machine and Setup
  • 1 2 gallon ZipLock bag
  • 1 Large container

Ingredients
  

  • 32 oz chicken broth or stock
  • 1 tbsp chicken bouillon
  • 6 lbs turkey breast whole (can be anywhere from 3lbs to 9lbs)

Instructions
 

  • Use a 2- Gallon ZipLock bag ( big enough to hold the turkey ) and put it in your Sous Vide container of choice.
  • Place turkey in the brining bag and fill with chicken broth or stock and bouillon and seal.
  • Fill container with water slowly pushing the brining bag under the water while you seal it, squeezing air out as you go; remove as much air as possible so bag does not float.
  • Attach a sous vide cooker to the edge of the container. Wrap it in a dish towel for insulation. Cover the pot with plastic wrap or foil to reduce evaporation.
  • Set temperature to 150˚ F.
  • Cook for 12 to 18 hours.
  • Remove turkey from the brining bag and transfer to the refrigerator to cool for at least 4 hours or longer.
  • Remove turkey from fridge and brining bag. Save brine and freeze for soups, etc.
  • Debone and remove skin from turkey and discard the bones and skin.
  • Slice turkey to your desired thickness and package for your turkey sandwiches.
