    Slow cooking tends to be the best. You can have it in the oven for 36 hours, but make sure you have a "tent" over it to keep the juice in (A tent being tin foil).

    For the first 12 hours, try it at 250 degrees, then put it up to 350 for the rest of the time. I can give you recipes and other details, just message me. Good luck!

    place in an appropriate size pan put in about 2-3 cups water lots of butter or the like salt and pepper put a foil tent over it and place on center rack of oven at 325 degrees untouched for 2.5 hours at that time you might want to start basting making sure to recover tightly about every 30 mins for the rest of the cook time now using a meat thermometer and putting it into the thickest part of the breast all the way down cook until it reaches a core temp of a minimum of 165 degrees it should be juicy delicious enjoy! cook time aprox 3.5 -4.5 hours you may need to add water during cooking process use common sense .
