Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

                          Slow Cooker Turkey and Gravy

I like to eat turkey all year long. The problem is I don’t have time to bake, brine, stuff, or slather flavored butter under turkey skin except on Thanksgiving Day! My solution is a boneless turkey breast. This slow cooker recipe only has 3 ingredients and is perfect for work night dinners. It even comes with gravy! My friend, Lisa Smalling, serves this turkey on Thanksgiving Day to save her oven for side dishes.

A high school friend of my mine, Diane Tapay’s, mother Rosalyn Winn developed this recipe.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast with Gravy

3 pound boneless turkey breast, thawed
1 cup (33% less sodium) chicken broth
1 stick unsalted butter, sliced

Place all ingredients into a 5 quart slow cooker (keep netting on turkey so it won’t unroll). Cook turkey on low heat 4 to 6 hours or until internal temperature is 165ºF.  Prepare gravy according to gravy packet directions. Remove netting from turkey and cut into slices. Makes 8-10 (1-inch) slices.
