Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast

I told y'all on Friday that I couldn't wait to share some of the recipes from Thanksgiving!  Probably the best one being the slow-cooker turkey breast!  Turkey is well known for drying out and just being icky!   That couldn't be further from the truth with this guy!  It was so juicy, so easy & delicious!  So good, in fact, I didn't even get a picture of the whole thing.  All I have is the pic of the turkey, on my plate...

Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast


1 turkey breast {thawed, if frozen} and patted dry
1 3/4 c. chicken stock
1/4 c. white wine
1 clove garlic, cut in half
1 onion, quartered
2 tablespoons butter, melted & separated
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
salt & pepper

Turn slow cooker to high.  Add in chicken stock, wine, garlic, and onion.  Lay turkey breast, skin side up, in slow cooker.  Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with thyme, rosemary, salt & pepper.  Put the lid on & cook on high for 3 hours.  After 3 hours, turn to low heat and cook for another 3 hours or until the center reads at least 170 degrees on a meat thermometer {this is where that one I mentioned yesterday comes in handy!}

Once the center reads 170, turn the broiler in your oven on to high.  Carefully take turkey breast and place in baking dish and brush with the reserved melted butter.  Place under the broiler for approx. 5 minutes, or until the top is golden and crispy {keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn}

Remove from oven, cover with foil & let rest for 15 minutes.  Slice and serve!

PS: don't discard the liquid in the slow-cooker.  It makes THE BEST gravy!!

  1. I'm really happy you posted this because the company I work for gave us a free turkey for Christmas and I'm not a big fan of roasted turkey and fried is too time consuming. So crock pot may be what I need to do!

  2. I've never tried making a crockpot turkey! Crockpots make life so much easier :-)

  3. I definitely need to try this - I love my crockpot and use it all the time!

  4. My mom made a lot of our Thanksgiving food in the crockpot this made things SO much easier!
