Easy Slow Cooker Turkey Breast recipe made with butter, a sliced apple and a basic mix of traditional seasonings. Crock pot turkey breast recipe perfect for any time of the year!

Course: Main Course, Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Keyword: turkey breast in crock pot
Servings: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey breast (mine was boneless, about 3 pounds)
  • 1 small apple
  • 4 TBSP butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 tsp crushed rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 2 tsp onion powder

Instructions

  • Place your turkey breast in the slow cooker.
  • Combine the seasonings in a small bowl. Rub the seasonings on the turkey breast, making sure to get some underneath the skin. Dot turkey with butter (again, put some underneath the skin.)
  • Slice apple. Place apple slices in the crockpot, on and around the turkey breast. There's no need to add any additional liquid, the butter and apple are sufficient!
  • Cook on LOW for 3-4 hours, until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.  **If your turkey breast is bone-in, then you'll need to cook it for 5-6 hours on low. After 4 hours, check every hour to make sure you don't over cook it!
  • Let turkey rest after cooking- I like to leave mine in the crockpot on warm for 10 minutes to even an hour, until just before we're ready to eat. I also remove the skin prior to serving- it helps keep the turkey moist, but the texture isn't the greatest after slow cooking. Slice and serve with gravy and cranberry sauce.
