When roasting a turkey do you cover it with foil?
Because roasting racks have narrower sides than roasters, more hot air can flow around the turkey, resulting in extra-crispy skin on the outside of the bird. Covering the turkey with aluminum foil replicates the function of a roaster cover in that it holds steam and moisture, preventing the bird from drying out while also enabling the skin to crisp up.
How do you cook a turkey breast in aluminum foil?
Place the turkey breast side up in the middle of the aluminum foil, lengthwise in the centre of the foil. Bring the ends of the foil up to the point where they overhang the turkey. Insert the meat thermometer into the thickest portion of the thigh by cutting a hole in the foil. Place the turkey in a shallow roasting pan and wrap the bird with aluminum foil from the sides up.

Do you cook a turkey at 325 or 350?
Roast in a 325° or 350° oven (depending on the size of the chicken; see below) until a thermometer registers 160 degrees. If the turkey is not stuffed, tilt it gently to allow fluids to escape from the body cavity into the pan. Place the turkey on a serving plate. Allow to stand for 15 to 30 minutes in a warm, exposed location before carving.
How do you make a juicy turkey not dry?
Here’s a terrific method for keeping the turkey breast moist and juicy when cooking: Make a triangle out of a huge square sheet of aluminum foil. Rub one side of the triangle with olive oil and form the foil (oil-side-down) over the turkey breast, then remove the foil; this will shield your turkey breast and prevent it from becoming dry throughout the cooking procedure.
Should I cover the turkey while it rests?
3. The turkey must be allowed to rest before it can be carved. Allowing it to rest for around 45 minutes or so allows the juices to reabsorb; otherwise, they would trickle out when you slice it, and the flesh will be dry. It is not essential to tent the turkey with foil to keep it warm while it is resting; doing so would cause the skin to get soggy and mushy.
How long do you cook a turkey breast at 325?

Approximately half-inch of liquid (water or stock) should be added to the roasting pan. This will keep the oven wet and the turkey juicy throughout the cooking process. When cooking the turkey, this fragrant liquid can be used to baste it while it cooks (there is some controversy about whether basting is effective, but it is part of the ritual).
