A friend gave me a couple of wild turkey breasts out of his freezer the other day.

I baked at (350 degrees) one in a covered pot with some water and spices. It came out dry and tough.

If anyone has a good recipe for wild turkey, I'd appreciate seeing it.

Thanks,

You don't want to bake skinless Wild Turkey breasts. My favorite recipe for breast meat is very simple and requires nothing more than salt, pepper, oil and a lemon. Schnitzel: http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthre...rue#Post2870251

Yep. Poser, I watched the show "Meateater" awhile back where he did basically what you posted regarding turkey schnitzel.

I tried doing same with doves that we took out opening day.

It was, well, OK - of course I don't care for dove all that much.

My family loves my "chicken fried turkey."
Cut breast into half inch slices [against the grain] pound out flat with a meat mallet, mix flour, salt, pepper, and whatever seasoning you like. Dredge in an egg wash, coat with the flour mixture and fry it up.
This is also a good way to fry up some of the tougher cuts of venison only add a half teaspoon or so of cayenne pepper.

You can make killer BBQ out of it. Smoke it on 250 for two hours then cover with foil in a roasting pan with a little bit of chicken stock the bottom for an hour and it will be moist and tender.

This. I don't pound mine out though. Comes out tender and moist every time.

I don't see how you could fry them without tenderizing first. -just seems like it would be too tough. You must slice them very thin at least?

I've had it fried once and it was tought. My friend thought he would make turkey nuggets. Not quite as tender as he thought they would be. I like it grilled and made into some sort of sandwich with good bread.

You must slice the turkey against the grain 1/2in thick.Soak in BUTTERMILK for 24 hours batter and fry it is done the instant it floats not a moment longer.This should be the best fried wild turkey you ever had.Just do not overcook it.

I take the breast and cut it into what would be 1"x1" by 5" strips and lightly pound it with a mallet or tenderizer mallet and season and fry or bake...It helps to cut diagonally cross the grain too...
