Kittencal's Juicy Crock Pot Turkey Breast

"This method creates a very moist flavorful turkey breast, the low slow cooking will create juice if you want more juice just add in a can of low-sodium chicken broth undiluted although you really don't need to --- do not add in any extra salt the onion soup mix is salty enough --- for best flavor I recommend not to use previously frozen then thawed turkey breast, use fresh if possible, since every crock pot cooks differently the cooking time is only estimated, a bone-in breast will need slightly longer to cook --- see my recipe#145064"

    It says on recipe “does it need chicken stock or broth”. I am thinking it was supposed to be doesn’t need chicken stock or broth...right?

    My turkey breast is only 3 1/2 pounds. How long should I cook it?

    When I cook a turkey breast in the crockpot, I cut an onion and layer it on the bottom so the turkey is not laying directly on the heat. That helps it not to dry out. I also let it rest for about 20 min and then put it in the oven on broil to crisp up the skin (watch closely it goes fast!). In the meantime, I use the liquid from the crockpot to make the gravy. I cut the turkey and put it back in the crockpot on warm with the gravy until I am ready to serve.
