One of my favorite ways to cook wild turkey breast is on the grill. This simple marinade is a great way to add some zip to your next wild turkey meal and prevent the meat from drying out as it cooks. The fresh flavor of lemon paired with dried herbs and seasonings is perfect for this light and refreshing family meal.

Serve the turkey with grilled vegetables and rice for a meal the entire family will love.


1 half wild turkey breast, sliced into cutlets


1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 tablespoon dried basil

1 tablespoon dried parsley

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Cooking Instructions

Slice the turkey breast into 1-inch steaks, across the grain for tenderness.

Slice the breast meat into 1-inch steaks.

Heat your grill to 350 degrees. Place the marinated turkey directly on the grill grate. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

The marinade both tenderizes and adds flavor to the wild turkey breast.

Allow the turkey to rest, loosely tented with foil, for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
