Turkey breast is cooked both on the stove and in the oven. When you hear of turkey breast cooked in the oven, most of you think of roasted turkey breast, some think of turkey breast roll, and almost none think of turkey breast casserole.
This is because turkey breast casserole recipes are rare, probably due to the fact that cooking turkey breast in the oven is quite delicate in order to get a food featuring tender and juicy turkey breast.
However, cooking turkey breast in the oven with spectacular results is possible and I’ll show you one of the recipes that I use.
So, what do you need for cooking turkey breast in the oven? High-quality ingredients, some time, and mastering a cooking technique that involves both searing and baking.
The first step when cooking turkey breast in the oven is to cut the breast, which is usually large and weighs a few good kilos/pounds. The best way to cut the breast for this recipe is to get one-two finger thick stripes.
After cutting the meat, the next step for cooking turkey breast in the oven with great results is to sear the meat in a frying pan in order to tenderize it and seal the juice inside.
After this, cooking turkey breast in the oven becomes very easy. You need to make a sauce, place it over the fried meat pieces, and bake the casserole in the oven.
Needless to say, cooking turkey breast in the oven enables you to cook flavorful casseroles with tender turkey breast!

Not sure about what a casserole is? Just read below more information for a better understanding of this cooking technique.
A casserole (French: diminutive of casse, from Provençal cassa ‘pan’) is a variety of a large, deep pan or bowl used for cooking a variety of dishes in the oven; it is also a category of foods cooked in such a utensil. To distinguish the two uses, the pan can be called a “casserole dish” or “casserole pan”, whereas the food is simply “a casserole”. The same pan is often used both for cooking and serving.
In the United States, a casserole is typically a baked food with three main components: pieces of meat (such as chicken or ground meat) or fish (such as tuna) or other protein (such as beans or tofu), various chopped vegetables, and a starchy binder (such as flour, potato or pasta); sometimes, there is also a crunchy or cheesy topping.
Liquids are released from the meat and vegetables during cooking, and further liquid in the form of stock, wine, beer, gin, cider, vegetable juice, or even water may be added when the dish is assembled. Casseroles are usually cooked slowly in the oven, often uncovered. They may be served as a main course or side dish, and, conveniently, may be served in the vessel in which they were cooked.
In English-speaking Commonwealth countries like the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, the term casserole is most commonly used to refer to a dish of meat or chicken with vegetables and a gravy-style sauce; dishes containing a large proportion of starchy ingredients, e.g. pasta or potatoes, or those cooked in creamy sauces are not generally referred to as casseroles, and might be called ‘bakes’ or ‘gratins’. In the UK, the terms casserole and stew tend to be used interchangeably, although technically stews are cooked on a stovetop while casseroles are cooked in an oven.Casserole (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casserole)
Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it is also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein.
Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties. It is a very good source of the trace mineral selenium, which is an essential component required for thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. Scientific studies have suggested that selenium intake can bring down cancer incidence.
Turkey is believed to have mood-enhancing properties. It contains tryptothan, which produces serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps improve your mood. Tryptothan also plays an important role in strengthening the immune system, as suggested by scientific evidence.
The vitamin B6 and niacin present in turkey are essential for energy production in the body. Niacin is also important for converting the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the body into usable energy.
Being a rich source of vitamin B6, turkey facilitates methyl donation in the basic cellular process of ‘methylation’. Through this process methyl groups are transferred from one molecule to another which results in the formation of a wide range of active molecules that are important for the body.
The tryptothan present in turkey is effective in treating chronic insomnia. It promotes sleep and is therefore, recommended to those suffering from insomnia.Health benefits of eating turkey (https://www.turkeyfed.com.au/about-turkey/health-benefits/)
