Directions for: Poached Turkey Breast


1 boneless, skinless turkey breast (about 675 g or 1-1/2 lb)

4 cup chicken broth

salt and pepper


1. Place the turkey breast and broth in a large saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Insert a meat thermometer into the centre of the breast. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently until the thermometer reads 82°C (180°F), about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the broth for another use (mole sauce, soup, etc.). Tent the breast with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

2. Slice and serve with Mole Sauce.
