Preparation and Safety
Oven cooked from Chilled Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Fan assisted oven 170°C. 45 mins per Kg + 30 mins
Remove the giblets from the neckflap area and the neck from the main body cavity. If stuffing is to be used, stuff the neckflap only and allow extra time for cooking. Place the turkey in a roasting tin and cover loosely with foil.

If the juices are pink continue cooking until they are clear, checking every few minutes.
