Take the breast, marinade with Cajun spices, mix spices with drawn butter and or vegetable oil and inject into the meat. Let set overnight. Cut the two breasts into 3 strips each and coat with a spicy batter, drop the pieces in a fish fryer basket (wild birds all we use is the breast and tenderloins) and set in boiling peanut oil for 2.5 - 3 minutes per pound. Without the bones, it is usually a lot closer to the 2.5 minutes.
Same technique we do at Thanksgiving except on the whole bird.

6.8 = 270 Lite; Less Filling, Better Killing
Funny story last weekend... Set-up back aways from highway, as I heard a large flock across the highway. Tried in vain to call turkeys, gobbler kept responding, but would not come any closer than about 100 yards. Then I heard a couple of pots banging down the road and turkeys went ape---- and headed towards little old lady's house. Found out later that she feeds them every morning. Next time, I will leave turkey call in the cabin and bring a couple of pots.
LOL Bdlejune I got two turkeys with my 6.8 last season and they made great Christmas dinners.
Okay, here's a turkey breast recipe.
1 medium onion (chopped)
3-4 cloves garlic (diced)
1 Tbsp chicken broth powder (my grandma gives me Watkins, its the best)
2 cups water
salt and pepper
In a cast iron pan, heat a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil and cook the chopped onion over medium heat until translucent (5 min). Add the diced garlic and cook until aromatic (2-3 min). Remove the onion and garlic and set aside.
Add a little more oil and raise the heat to medium high. Liberally salt and pepper both sides of the turkey breast and add to the pan. Press down to get a good sear (if cooking two breasts, you may need to sear them one at a time). After 2-3 minutes, turn the breast (it should be nice and browned but not burned) and sear the other side.
After searing the other side, remove the breast and take the pan off the heat. Add two cups of water to the pan and scrape the fond off the pan with a spoon. Return the pan to the heat and bring to a boil.
Add the chicken broth powder and whisk it in. Return the onion and garlic to the pan and stir. Return the turkey breasts to the pan. Allow it to cook for 2-3 min.
Finally, transfer the whole mixture to the crock pot and let it cook on low for 4-6 hours (less may be ok). Shred the turkey breast in the crock pot with a fork. Add your favorite BBQ sauce and let it all warm up. Serve on rolls and watch the Packers beat whoever they are playing.
