Turkey with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

Turkey with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

"When we were first married, I didn't have an oven, so I made this tender turkey in the slow cooker," recalls Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "These days, I rely on this recipe because it frees up the oven to make other dishes for large get-togethers."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 3 hours + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless skinless turkey breast half (2-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained, or 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  • 1. Place turkey in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with seasonings. Top with mushrooms. Pour wine over all. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours (a thermometer inserted in turkey should read at least 165°).
  • 2. Remove turkey to a serving platter; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Transfer cooking juices to a small saucepan; bring to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve turkey with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
