Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

November 3, 2020

A new Thanksgiving tradition begins with a slow cooker turkey breast. This recipe can also be made in a Dutch oven or on the stove top in a heavy-duty stockpot. Using this method also frees up your oven for side dishes and pies. 

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
Serves 6

One 5 to 6 – pound bone-in turkey breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1 large sprig rosemary
2 large sage leaves
4 sprigs parsley
1 onion peeled and quartered
¾ cup chicken broth

Dry the turkey breast with paper towels. Set aside

Pour the olive oil into a slow cooker or other type pot.

In a small bowl, combine the poultry seasoning, pepper and salt. Rub all over the turkey breast and place it in the slow cooker. Turn the breast in the oil to coat it well.

Ties the rosemary, sage and parsley with kitchen string and add to pot.

Add the onion and pour the broth around the turkey.

Cover and set cooking cycle on low for 4 ½ to 5 hours or when the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 165F. If using a Dutch oven, bake covered at 350F; if using a stove top pot, rely on a thermometer reading of 165F

Serve cut into slices with some of the pan juices.
