Crock Pot Turkey Breast

Yum
If you haven't checked out th Crock Pot Lady's blog, you are missing out. The girl does everything from food to crafts in her crockpot!

I decided to try a turkey breast for my school's snack day today. It was super easy, smelled fabulous in the kitchen and Bob said it was really good!



Crock Pot Turkey Breast

1 turkey breast, thawed
1 onion, quartered
2 c chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 stick of butter

Open turkey package, rinse meat and pat dry. Put a liner in your crockpot, pour in chicken broth, place in meat, put onion all around, salt and pepper, and place pats of butter all around. Cook on high 1 hour, then on low for six hours. Make sure internal temperature reaches 140 degrees in the first three hours. I checked with a meat probe.



Remove meat from crockpot and let rest for five minutes. Slice. (That's easier than it sounds, the meat is very tender, so use a serrated knife and go slow)

  1. I love that you can use the liner in your crockpot. That is my biggest hang-up with crockpots.
    I hate cleaning that dried on ring that always forms!

    I did not know you could use a liner!

    Thank You!!!!

  2. I love cooking a turkey breast in my crockpot too. Your recipe sounds (and looks) really yummy. I'll have to give it a try. Mine is very easy. I just rinse the turkey breast and pat dry. I sprinkle a little salt and pepper and then put a can of cream of chicken & mushroom soup on the top...no water. That's it. Just cover and cook. The soup and dripping from the turkey make the gravy. So yummy!

    Happy Thanksgiving sweet friend!
