I was at Target today, and found a 2.5 lb "Archer Farms Cook-in-Bag Homestyle Boneless Turkey breast." Has anyone tried this, and, if so, how was it? I grabbed once since they only had a few left. We're having a small Thanksgiving this year, and I wanted to do just a turkey breast so we have an entree and some leftovers for sandwiches.

If you have tried it, would love to know what you thought! TIA

Oh! OH! My husband and I bought one a few months ago. I don't even like turkey, so I made it for him one evening. It smelled so good that I had to have a taste. Remember -- I don't like turkey. Thanksgiving is wasted on me -- I subsist on potatoes and stuffing. But I tasted this turkey. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!

We didn't use the gravy packet that's inside. I just tossed that. I melted some butter and shmeared it on. Shook some paprika on it, and threw it in the oven. My husband was running late so it was in the oven for what seemed like forever. I figured that I'd dried it out but what did I care? I wasn't going to eat it. Well. It wasn't dried out and it was yummy, yummy in the tummy.

ETA: Wait. Now I'm not sure we're talking about the same turkey. I don't remember it being called "Cook in Bag" -- I took mine out of the wrapper. I also think that the one that we bought was on a bone. Damn. I was all excited to give you the good news and now I'm not sure.

Thanks DandJ! Did you cook it in the bag? Did you get the "cook-in-bag one" boneless one or the regular (bony) Archer Farms breast? Mine doesn't have gravy packet inside (unless it's going to be a surprise, but the directions say not to take it out of the bag until after cooking).

Does Artie get turkey?

Ah! You must not have seen my ETA. I think it's a different turkey. Mine wasn't a cook in the bag... and I'm almost positive that it had a bone. I must have gotten the "regular (bony)" one. Sorry!

Artie, my delicate flower with the super-sensitive stomach? Good God, no. No turkey for him. I couldn't risk it.

Didee, I bought the Archer Farms cook in bag turkey breasts a few years ago when there were just a few of us for Thanksgiving. They are easy to prepare and so delicious. I use them a couple times throughout the year and will be buying them again this Thanksgiving because no one in our family likes the dark meat so why cook a whole turkey. I highly recommend this brand.

I brought an
Archer Farms cook in a bag homestyle boneless turkey breast.the problem I had with it was I couldn't put any slices in the bag for ventllation.So it didn't ventilate.I didn't like the stuff they coated the turkey with and since it didn't ventilate it got very dry.It didn't taste good at all and the bag looked like it had thawed somewhat along way.Won't buy it again.
