How Long To Cook a Turkey Breast Per Pound?

Its my first time cooking a turkey breast and i am a little confused how long per pound and what temp. I know it should be done when it reaches 170
How long should I cook a 5.32lb turkey breast on the bone per pound...I know how long you could cook a full turkey, but I am not sure how long for just the breast...
should i cook it covered or uncovered?

Boneless takes longer to cook than a bone-in turkey. Cook for 30 minutes per pound, about 2-1/2 hours for your 4.75 lb. turkey breast. cook covered for the first 2 hours then uncover for last half hour to brown the skin.

cook them for about 2 - 3 hours. They cook faster than a whole turkey will. Cover them for about 2 hours, then uncover and bake for the last hour. Season with salt, pepper, a little butter and sage. Butter will put the brown crust on them.

Baste them every 30 min to keep moist
