Since we are only two, I am doing a “component turkey”: two drumsticks of about 12 ounces (3/4 lb) each and a half breast (bone-in) of a little under 3 pounds. I can find how long to roast a whole turkey, or just drumsticks, or just a (whole) breast, but no one covers “parts”. Obviously I would like to do them all together, or at least have them finished at the same time.
One site says roast drumsticks for 1.5-2 hrs at 350F; another gives the same instructions for the breast. But do I really want a 12-ounce drumstick in for as long as a 3-pound breast? Or am I being misled by microwave cooking rules which are super-dependent on weight? The length of time for a whole bird depends on the weight, but is that because it’s one large piece?
