At What Temperature is Turkey Done Cooking?

Turkey must cook to a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit to be eaten safely. This rule applies to turkey cutlets, turkey breasts, and full turkeys.

To keep your turkey as juicy as possible, try to remove the turkey as soon as it reaches 165 degrees at its thickest point. Overcooking turkey will cause it to taste dry.

An instant-read thermometer will help you get a quick reading. I recommend and use the Kizen Instant Read Thermometer. It shows the internal temperature in just 3 seconds, which helps keep the heat inside the air fryer if you need to cook the turkey a little more.
