Preparing a Turkey

How should I thaw my Chef's Pride Turkey?


Leave turkey in original bag. Place the turkey in a tray in the refrigerator for 3-4 days allowing 24 hours for every 5 pounds -OR- cover with cold water and thaw allowing 30 minutes per pound, changing water frequently. Do not thaw your turkey at room temperature.




How do I prepare my Chef's Pride turkey for roasting?


When the turkey is thawed, remove the neck and giblet bag from the turkey. Reserve neck and giblets for your stuffing and gravy recipes. Rinse turkey inside and out. If you are not going to be roasting the turkey at this time, refrigerate promptly.




How will I know when my Chef's Pride turkey is done roasting?


Roasting times vary with the size of the turkey, whether it is stuffed and the oven temperature. Roast until "Chef's Timer" pops up or until meat thermometer placed in the breast registers 180° F or the stuffing registers 165° F. If you do not have a meat thermometer, check the turkey at the estimated time by piercing with a fork. The turkey is done when the juices run clear. See cooking chart for roasting estimates.




What do I do when my Chef's Pride turkey is done?


When the turkey is done remove it from the oven. Lift it out of the roasting pan with large serving utensils and transfer it to a carving platter or board. Reserve pan juices to make gravy if desired. Cover loosely with foil. Let it rest at least 15 minutes before carving for easier slicing. And, of course, ENJOY!




How do I roast my Chef's Pride turkey?


Season turkey to your preference. Preheat oven to 325°F to 350°F. Place turkey breast-side up in a shallow roasting pan. Cover the turkey with foil to prevent over browning. Position turkey in the middle of the oven. To brown, roast the turkey uncovered for the last 30 minutes. Roast until "Chef's Timer" pops up or until meat thermometer placed in the thigh registers 160°F, the breast registers 180°F, or the stuffing registers 165°F. See cooking chart for roasting estimates.
