We love to eat turkey, and on hot summer days, here's how we get our fix. For golden-brown turkey, broil for a few minutes before serving. —Margaret Bracher, Robertsdale, Alabama

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 boneless turkey breast halves (2 pounds each)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • COMPOTE:
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup white grape juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

Mix salt, garlic powder, thyme and pepper; rub over turkey breasts. Place in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Pour water around turkey. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours (a thermometer inserted in turkey should read at least 165°).
Remove turkey from slow cooker; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine compote ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and apples are tender, 15-20 minutes. Serve turkey with compote. Yield: 12 servings (3-1/4 cups compote).

Test Kitchen tips
  • Use frozen fruit when fresh is out of season.

    "Great recipe! Slow cooking is great but it can be made a lot healthier. Instead of a crockpot, I used MEC pure clay pot for this recipe. It cooked a lot faster and the flavor was all natural and enhanced. You should try that and I promise you'd never cook in a crockpot again."

    "Yummy!! This is exactly what we needed for Thanksgiving this year. Very simple to put together and let the slow cooker take care of the rest. The compote was also very good; the crushed red pepper flakes gives it just enough heat to be noticed but not over powering."
