Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
Great recipe for when you need a smaller amount of turkey. Perfect for small Thanksgiving or Christmas get togethers.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time7 hrs
Total Time7 hrs 10 mins
- 5 lb. turkey breast (should have both sides of turkey breast if you can find it)
- ½ cup butter melted (1 stick)
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- ½ tsp. dried rubbed sage
- 1 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 tsp. paprika
Remove the turkey from packaging and make sure to remove any extra bits that are stuffed in the cavity. Pat the turkey dry with paper towel.
Add the turkey breast to the slow cooker. Pour over the melted butter, then sprinkle over the seasonings.
Cover and cook on low for 7 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
Let the turkey rest for about 10 minutes before carving. I started carving with a knife first, then switched to my electric knife and that helped make thinner slices. Serve and enjoy!
Note- I made gravy with the drippings from this recipe, I used a turkey gravy packet and 1 cup of the drippings. You could make homemade gravy too.
If you are going to carve this, then keep it warm in the the slow cooker, leave some of the drippings with the meat, or chicken broth to keep it moist.
