Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Cook’s notes: It’s really easy to make half a turkey breast (bone-in) in a slow cooker. I looked at several recipes on line, and they all agreed. This turned out well.

Note: The turkey breast must be thawed, not frozen.

  1. Rinse turkey breast and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Rub olive oil over both sides of the turkey breast. Be careful of the bones on the cut side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Season with chicken dry rub.
  4. Place turkey breast meaty side up, in slow cooker.
  5. Cover and cook on low 8 hours, or until the minimum internal temperature is 165 °F as measured with a food thermometer.
  6. Remove from slow cooker and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Menu: We served the turkey with buttermilk biscuits, green beans, and roasted sweet potato.
