"This is a very tasty and easy way to cook a turkey breast in the slow cooker," says Marie Ramsden, Fairgrove, Michigan. The sweet cranberry sauce complements the turkey nicely. Then use the extra meat in the two recipes here.
- 2 boneless skinless turkey breast halves (2 pounds each)
- 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, divided
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Place turkey breast in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, 1/2 cup water and soup mix. Pour half over turkey. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove turkey and keep warm.
- Transfer both cranberry mixtures to a large saucepan. Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth. Bring cranberry mixture to a boil; gradually stir in cornstarch mixture until smooth. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice turkey; serve with cranberry sauce. Yield: 10 servings.
