This is so simple and quick to do and you will have the most moist turkey breast to just slice and serve. The skin even browns in the crock pot. I like to make gravy and serve this as hot turkey sandwiches. This includes a simple tasty way to make the gravy.
- 6 -7 lbs turkey breast, thawed, if frozen
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
- fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- turkey broth, from crock pot
- 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons flour
- Place onion and celery in cavity of turkey breast.
- Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper and place in 5 to 6 quart slow cooker.
- Pour broth over turkey, cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.
- Remove turkey to serving platter, cover with foil to keep warm while making gravy.
- Place liquid in saucepan after straining out veggies, and add 1 to 2 cans chicken broth- depending on how much gravy you want to make.
- In a covered jar, shake together the flour mixed with about 1/2 to 1 cup of water until smooth- or you can whisk it in a bowl.
- When liquid comes to a boil, slowly stir in flour mixture, adding just enough to thicken it to your liking.
- Cook until it bubbles and thickens, stirring often.
We loved this way of cooking a turkey breast. It came out so very tender. I did make a little mixture of olive oil,minced garlic, onion powder, Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Sage, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I love a lot of seasoning on my turkey. Rubbed the mixture under the skin and all over the turkey. The gravy was really good, added Kitchen Bouquet Browning & Seasoning Sauce to the gravy to give it a nice brown color. Will be using your recipe many times.
EAT! DRINK! NAP! (Oh, fine...but without the explanation points.)
The turkey was great. I didn't need to make the extra gravy as I had about 4 cups of good flavored broth from cooking the turkey, it seems my crockpot make a lot of liquid.
