Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 5 hours
Awesome- cooked to perfection. It was great for taking to a pot luck. Very very moist. (I did brine the bird the eve before)
Best slow cooker turkey I've made. My only substitution was chicken broth instead of water. Turkey was delicious, moist and juicy!
Awesome recipe! I cooked our Turkey Breast during Thanksgiving family gathering. It was amazing! The meat fell right of the breast bone with excellent flavor. Thanks for sharing!
Absolutely amazing. Super juicy and flavorful - even though I lost track of time and overcooked it by probably 20 degrees! I used about 3/4 cup of broth because I had it on hand, and ended up with just shy of 4 cups of "drippings" that made fantastic gravy. Everyone loved it, and I'll never make turkey breast another way.
What an easy way to make Thanksgiving turkey (breast)! I did do a few things differently: places the turkey on large chunks of onion and carrots, used chicken stock instead of water, and leave the skin on, season the meat under and the skin. When the 8hrs in the slow cooker were done, I heated a non-stick pan to medium high heat and crisped up the skin. It looked beautiful! More than half the breast was gone by the end of the night - most of my guests devoured the delicious dark meat I braised in the stove. That left all my oven space open to heat up the sides and desserts! Would definitely do this again.
Used this on a wild turkey breast. It was tender and very tasty!
I have not tried this yet but can not wait to do so. I am surprised that you take the skin off. Can not wait to try it.
Made this for dinner yesterday. It was the best turkey we have ever had. Simple, moist and flavorful. Plan to fix several for Thanksgiving instead of one big turkey.
Perfect recipe---wouldn't change a thing! Made exactly as written (except shorter time in slow cooker as my turkey breast was on the small side) for Thanksgiving and it was a hit: moist, flavorful (as flavorful as turkey gets, but who cares when there's gravy??) and out of the way so I could use the oven all day for other stuff. Win!!
