Fried Turkey Breasts

Servings 2 breasts


For the Brine

  • 1 gallon water
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup salt
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • peel of one lemon


To Fry the Turkey Breasts

  1. I like to get just the right amount of oil for the frying process. To do this, place the turkey breasts in a large pot. Pour water over the turkey to 3 inches above the turkey. Remove the breast and measure the amount of water in the pot. Use this measurement to determine the amount of oil you will need for frying or you can guestimate if you wish!
  2. Place oil in a fryer and bring oil to 375 degrees. Slowly submerge turkey into hot oil 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes. If you have 10 pounds of turkey, you would multiply 10 X 3 + Your time would be 35 minutes.
