Sous-vide turkey breast is so tender, juicy, and flavorful! In just a few simple steps, you’ll have a delicious, fully cooked turkey breast for your next holiday or weekend potluck.

What makes this recipe so good?

  • The sous vide does all the hard work! Just put all the ingredients in a bag, put them in your sous vide bath, and you’re back to having perfectly cooked turkey breasts every time. This easy dinner recipe is totally foolproof!
  • It is intensely moist and flavorful. Blanching the turkey breast with all the seasonings, then simmering it for 3 hours, the meat absorbs as much flavor as possible.
  • It has an extra crispy and delicious skin! The sous vide does a flawless job of cooking the inside of the turkey, even if it does little for the skin. So we’ve added one last quick step that only takes a few minutes and produces irresistibly crispy skin.

Main ingredients

Boneless turkey breast with skin – Since this cut can be a little hard to find, I recommend buying the bone-in, skin-on turkey breasts. Then simply cut off the bone before using the turkey breast in this recipe. The reason for removing the bones is to facilitate carving and later feeding. Also, the reason we leave the skin on is so we can mash it up and add a delicious texture to this meal in general. Even if you are lucky enough to find this rare boneless cut of meat, get it and use it in this sous vide recipe!

fresh thyme – This refreshing herb is light, yet flavorful enough to complement turkey breast without overpowering its delicious flavors. Though feel free to use any fresh or dried herbs you like in this recipe! Fresh rosemary would be a great addition, as would fresh sage and/or fresh oregano.

chef tips

  • Depending on the size of the turkey breasts, sous vide cooking may take longer. So to check if the meat is cooked or not, simply insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the brisket. Once the thermometer reads 165° Fahrenheit, the meat is thoroughly cooked and safe to serve.
  • Add more or less flavor depending on your preferences! I’m a huge fan of garlic, so sometimes I throw a few extra crushed cloves in the vacuum bag. Have fun with this recipe and make it your own!
  • I usually use gallon size ziplock bags for my vacuum packed recipes though I recommend using a two gallon bag for this particular recipe. Using a larger bag will ensure that the bag closure is above the waterline. Avoid a smaller bag which can cause the seal to fall below the waterline and carries the risk of water entering the bag.
