    1/2 turkey breast and 2 thighs...

    Wed May 04, 2005 10:59 am Groupie
    I'm planning to brine these for a couple of hours and then roast in my crockpot. I'm just running out the door now, and don't have time to search recipes, but wanted to see if any of you experts have a quick suggestion on how long to do these pieces on "High". I will preheat the pot.
    Weight of the 1/2 breast is 3 1/2 lbs, the thighs (no legs) are about 1 1/2 lbs total.

    MAKE SURE you rinse it off well!! I BRINED mine for a few days and didn't quite get it all off.. it was GREAT though!

    I would just put them into the crock and leave.. on low, in 8/10 hrs they'll be perfect!

    Well, I did it! Preheated my pot on High for the 30 minutes I brined the breast/thigh pieces. Rinsed the meat (thanks for the reminder, Ambergriffinco), patted dry, rubbed with canola oil and tossed it in, breast meat side down and thighs tucked on the sides. Threw in 1/2 can reduced salt chicken broth and let it cook on High 3 hours.
    Tons of flavorful broth made a great gravy, not too salty 'cuz it only brined for a while, and the meat was perfect.
    This was great... easy and enough leftovers for a couple more meals. At $.99 lb, I'm feeling very smug!
