Slow Cooked Turkey Breast

It is November and I can't wait to have some turkey. Something about the smell that just evokes fall and the coming holiday season. Last year I made two turkeys in November which was both labor intensive and expensive. This year I am mixing it up a bit with half the work but the benefit of the smell and taste. Please enjoy!

 Slow Cooked Turkey Breast

Celery and Carrots
- 1 6 lb. Bone-In Turkey Breast
- Celery (one package)
- 3 or 4 Carrots
- 1 Sweet Yellow Onion
- 1 Garlic Clove (minced)
Sweet Onion
- 1 package of Onion Soup Mix
- 1/4 cup Chicken Broth
- 1/4 cup white wine
- dash of Oregano, Sage, and Thyme
- 1 tbsp. Melted Butter

Step 1: Chopped the celery, carrots and onion and put them in the crock pot. 

Step 2: Rinse and pat dry the turkey breast. Rub the contents of one package of Onion soup mix all over the turkey breast. 
Minced Garlic

Step 3: Put the Turkey Breast in the crock pot. *Optional to put some of the vegetables in the opening of the breast. 

Step 4: Then I layer the minced garlic, oregano, sage and thyme on top of the turkey breast. 

Spices and Garlic on top of Turkey Breast. 

Step 5: Pour 1/4 cup of chicken broth and 1/4 cup of white wine into the crock pot. 

Step 6: Drizzle 1 tablespoon of butter on top of everything. 

Cook on high for 1 hour then low for 6 hours more.

After cooking

Pairs well with a Pinot Grigio. 

Final result, the vegetables were so good.

I just entered this recipe at the CSI Project!

After cooking, Lance got home way late so I had to wait another hour before we could eat. It was delicious but I would make side dishes of mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce to really make it like Thanksgiving. 


  1. This looks delicious! What a fun way to do turkey. Thankfully I am not in charge of the turkey this year, but next year, when it will be my turn I might be digging this up again!

  2. I love the slow cooker but have never done turkey in it. Don't know why, it looks so moist. I am a new follower from Flamingo Toes. Vicky from Mess For Less
