How to Sous Vide Turkey Breast

I cook my turkey breasts at 141°F (60.6°C) for at least long enough to pasteurize them, about 2 to 4 hours. Any temperature between 136°F (57.8°C) and 147°F (63.9°C) is common. Turkey is often a little tougher than chicken though so it can benefit from a few extra hours and I'll often go for 4 to 8 hours.

Some other popular time and temperature combinations are ChefSteps, who recommends 131°F (55°C) for 8 to 14 hours. Some people recommend 145°F up to 150°F (62.7°C to 65.5°C) for a more "traditional" texture, though it will definitely be less moist.

I'll often skip the searing step after sous viding the turkey to maximize the tenderness of the meat.
