Ok guys, I have the turkey breast recipe to end all!! I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed this! It was SO easy, fast, and up there with my favorite turkey recipe’s of all time! It was so moist and tender, and even the next day (today) just as good after sitting in the fridge overnight (maybe even better)?! If you cook nothing else this week, make THIS! I promise you will be in love!
– turkey breast roast, mine was 3 pounds
– 1/2 yellow onion, quartered
– 1/2 a stick (4 tbsp) of butter
– salt and pepper
– 2 cups chicken broth
– 1 tsp. parsley
– 2 stalks celery chopped, I didn’t use it in my recipe because I didn’t have any on hand, but I’ll try it next time for added flavor!
Start by rinsing and patting your turkey breast dry, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place breast side down in your crockpot.
Place the onion, parsley, and *celery in the crockpot with the roast. Pour the chicken broth over the turkey and then place the 1/2 stick of butter right on top of your turkey.
Place the lid on your crockpot and let cook 4-6 hours on high. In the original recipe, it said you could cook it on low for 7-9 hours. However, I heard on The Food Network that you shouldn’t let non red meats slow cook, because there is a higher chance of bacteria being able to grow? Not sure if that’s true, but I just decided to go with the “better safe than sorry” route. I can’t imagine it being any more delicious than it already was, so cooking it on high was perfect!
Happy Turkey Crocking!
