I am not a big meat eater, especially when it comes to turkey. I should say traditional turkey. You know the 20 lb bird that you have to clean out, wash it, season it, and then stuff it, try to figure out how to get that nice brown color, cook it to perfection?!
It meant that we missed out on our annual family gathering with my grandparents, but also meant that we got to have a Thanksgiving dinner, just the 3 of us. While we missed all being together, it was a great experience for our little family. But rather than doing a whole turkey, I just did a turkey breast.
This moist, meaty turkey breast has just two ingredients—it couldn't be easier. I made a few modifications: Using a 7. I was so excited to try this.
This recipe uses only 4 ingredients and is simple, juicy and delicious. Perfect for a holiday celebration or a weeknight meal! I mean, is there any holiday more perfectly suited for a food blogger?! AND all about the food!
Crock pot turkey breast is an easy dinner cooked effortlessly in a slow cooker for tender, juicy meat. The spice-rubbed turkey is served with homemade gravy. There is no need to wait until Thanksgiving dinner or the holidays to enjoy a turkey feast.
This slow cooker turkey breast is coated in a seasoned herb butter, then placed in the crock pot to cook to tender perfection. I serve my crock pot turkey with some of our favorite side dishes like cranberry jello salad and bacon brussels sprouts. Can you believe that such a browned and succulent turkey breast can come from a slow cooker?
Haha is meat. Look at this, tender, juicy meat and look at how thin and browned that skin is. It came out as crispy as it would in the oven.
Without a doubt, this is the easiest, safest and tastiest way to cook turkey breast without brining. Then use the juices to make a killer gravy! Turkey breast is notoriously lean so the only way to guarantee it comes out juicy if you roast it in the oven is to brine it — dry or wet brine.
Crock Pot Turkey Breast cooks up tender and full of flavor with minimal effort. A tasty gravy from the cooking juices can be made in just minutes. Do you start to crave a Thanksgiving-style meal before Thanksgiving?
This slow-cooked turkey breast is sure to inspire your healthiest, most delicious weeknight meals yet. Unlike roasting, slow-cooking locks in moisture, creating juicy and flavorful meat. Keep the skin on while cooking to seal in the herbed butter rub. If not kept under the correct conditions with proper pampering, it becomes dry and tough.
