Sometimes, there is not much time to get a meal together. Here is a great recipe for turkey that is delicious! Just add stuffing, gravy (I use the turkey gravy in a jar when I’m in a hurry), green bean casserole, another vegetable, rolls, and a dessert from your favorite bakery.
Crock Pot Turkey Breast:
- 3-pound boneless turkey breast
- Can of chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or minced garlic)
- 1/4 teaspoon of minced onion flakes (or onion slices)
- Optional: your favorite herbs can be added such as fresh rosemary in place of the garlic
In the sink or a large dish, cut the plastic bag off the turkey breast with kitchen shears and also cut off the netting. There will be a lot of juices in the bag that will make a mess, so be sure to have something to catch the juices. Then place the turkey with the above ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on high for 2 hours and then on low for 6-8 hours (which I recommend), or cook it on low for 10-12 hours if you need to start cooking before you leave for work. If you’re short on time, cook for 4 – 4 1/2 hours on high. Make sure it’s tender and done in the middle.
Cooking the turkey breast in the crock pot makes it so moist and tender, and I think maybe it’s the best we’ve ever had. And the great thing is that it’s so easy.
