Pro Tips:

Turkey breasts come with a net around them.  You can leave the net on so that it cooks more evenly, but the cook time will be longer.  If you decide to remove the net, your cook time will vary depending on how even the pieces are.  However, it will cook faster.
 
The important thing is to watch the turkey to ensure it cooks to an internal temp of 165 degrees F.  Use a meat thermometer.
 
Letting the turkey rest after cooking (or set uncovered) for 15 minutes before you slice it will ensure that your meat stays juicy.
