I have a 12L halogen oven and am hoping to cook a turkey crown in it christmas day.
I need to cook a 2.9 Kilo (6.4lb) turkey crown and am not too sure on how long to cook it, if it will even fit or how to go about it
I wasn't sure whether you can cover the crown with tin foil either, so that it stays moist?
Can anyone help me, please?

Here's a recipe for Turkey crown.
You will need to adjust the time for the size of your turkey.
Using the tongs to turn the bird didn't work for me. I used silicone oven gloves for this.
I also use the extender ring. You may use a foil to cover it securely if the top is getting too brown too quick.
If you feel that the temperature is too high, then reduce it a bit.
You can replace the lemon and thyme with something else.
with lemon and thyme
4 - 4 ½ kg turkey crown
1 bulb garlic, cut in half
1 lemon, cut in half small bunch of thyme
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Remove and discard giblets and excess fat, wash turkey under cold water and pat dry.
Place the garlic, lemon, thyme and bay leaves inside the cavity of the bird and rub the skin with the olive oil, season the skin with cavity well with salt and freshly ground black pepper
Set temperature to 220°C and put the turkey onto the low wire rack.
Cook for one hour, using the tongs turn the bird so that the other end of the breast is uppermost.
Turn the temperature down to 170 °C and cook for a further 30 to 45 minutes or until the juices run clear when you insert a skewer into the base of the breast.
When cooked, removed the turkey from the Halogen Oven onto a warm plate. Cover the turkey in foil and leave to rest for 10 to 15 minutes
