How is a boneless turkey roast made?

You can make a boneless turkey roast in several ways; for this recipe, we choose to rub the turkey breast with herb and garlic butter before roasting to add a ton of flavor to the turkey. However, a simple salt and pepper rub with a splash of oil could also do the trick.  

Should you cover a boneless turkey breast when cooking?

It's good to cover the turkey with foil during the first half of cooking, then removing it to crisp up the skin at the end. 

Which is better boneless turkey breast or bone-in turkey breast?

While cooking turkey with the bone adds flavor to the turkey, cooking any poultry without the bone will cook the turkey much faster. 

How do I keep my turkey moist?

To keep the turkey moist, a little fat coating, such as healthy oil or butter, should be added under and on top of the skin.
