Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

by Skinny Ms.

Slow Cooker Holiday Turkey Breast
This holiday season slow cook a turkey breast and enjoy a flavorful turkey that is extra moist and has fewer calories. The slow cooker used for this recipe was the Set ‘n Forget with a meat thermometer that automatically switches to warm when the desired internal temperature is reached.  So, there is no more over or under cooking meats with the Set ‘n Forget slow cooker.

Ingredients

  • 1 (approximately 6 to 7.8 pounds) bone-in turkey breast with skin (skin will be removed later)
  • Recommend fresh turkey breast rather than defrosted, if possible.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning)
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste

Directions

Rinse turkey and pat dry with paper towels. Combine poultry seasoning, salt and pepper and olive oil in a small bowl. Rub the oil and herb mixture all over the turkey and inside the cavity.

Place the turkey, meaty side up, in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low 5 to 6 hours or until tender and it has reached an internal temperature of 165-170 degrees f. when probe is placed in the thickest part of the breast.

Preheat oven to broil. Carefully remove oven safe slow cooker insert with turkey and place on the bottom oven rack. Broil 8-10 minutes or until desired color has been reached. Keep a close eye on the turkey breast and be careful not to over brown. Breast should be golden and slightly crispy.

Remove insert from the oven and allow turkey to rest while still in slow cooker, 15 to 30 minutes. Caution should be taken when removing turkey as it still very hot. Remove turkey and place on a serving platter.

Tip: Remove skin before eating for optimal health.

A 6 to 7 quart slow cooker recommended. Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker with temperature probe was used for this recipe. I also like that this slow cooker allows for locking the lid in place.

    My broiler is separate at the bottom of my gas oven; insert will not fit under broiler. Any other suggestions?

      With some help of a friend or family member, carefully remove the turkey and place in a casserole dish that will fit. I'm assuming there's enough room for the turkey? If not, place in the oven on the highest temperature and allow to brown until golden, about the same amount of time should work. You don't want to leave the turkey in too long in order to keep it moist. Either way, keep a close watch out and 10 minutes is the max either way. Happy Thanksgiving!

    The breast is my fave part of the turkey (or chicken!). This looks like something that would smell wonderful cooking. It is on the menu to try next week! I cannot wait!
