Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine sea salt, red pepper flakes, black pepper, granulated garlic, and chili powder in a plastic container with lid. Seal container and shake until seasonings are well mixed.

  • Rub entire batch of spice mixture over turkey breast to coat completely; wrap breast in aluminum foil and refrigerate for 24 hours.

  • Remove breast from fridge and let stand at room temperature as you heat the oil.

  • Heat oil in a pot with a lid and large enough to hold the oil and breast to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Gently add breast to the oil, cover pot with lid, and fry until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

If using a bigger breast, you will need to double the spice rub.

Always deep-fry in a safe environment as oil, if too hot or if the pot is too full, can boil over creating a serious condition.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

We made it w/ the ingredients we doubled the spices for injection to marinade and rub. Soon juicy reminder: let it sit. It smelled so good we didn't wait we made the rookie mistake. Luckily it was on a plate I could catch all the yummy juices to add to my gravy. Read More
