crock pot turkey

Several people asked about the crock pot turkey we had on our menu for last Sunday’s dinner. Using the crock pot makes it a great meal for after church on Sunday. Easy and delicious.

I use a boneless turkey breast (or a boneless “whole” turkey with dark and light meat) which can be found in the frozen section of the grocery store. If I want to cook it on Sunday, I take it out of the freezer and put it in the fridge on Thursday so it has time to thaw. A frozen bone-in turkey breast can be cooked in the same way. A whole chicken would work fine, too.

DH put this is in the large crock pot where it looks rather lost. When I make it, I use the smaller one. The roast comes with a gravy packet which I wash and store in the fridge until needed. The turkey also comes with a net around it, which is supposed to be left on while it cooks. I always remove it because it’s much harder to remove after the turkey has cooked. I add a can of cream of chicken soup to the turkey and cook it on high for four hours. It can be cooked on low for eight hours, if that suits your timing better.

Sliced and ready for the table. This is moist and delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes (DD’s absolute favorite), stuffing (*my* favorite), corn, peas, and Ceasar salad.

This is not a great picture of the finished product…doesn’t do it justice. But, if you like turkey, you’ll love this easy recipe. 🙂

    I forgot to mention that I use the drippings in the crock pot to add to the gravy packet to make the required amount of liquid. We only use the gravy packet if we have company, but when we do use it, the drippings are great for making it more flavorful. ~~Rhonda

    I made this Friday and it was SO GOOD! I accidentally bought a savory herb flavored turkey breast, but it turned out GREAT! I liked the extra flavor!

    Also, made a huge pot of mashed potatoes! YUMMY!

    This will definitely be going on the menu rotation!

    I am planning on making this Saturday!I am very excited to try this because I once made one of these turkeys in my big huge crock pot and it was the first thing i used it for so I had this theory in my mind that you have to put alot of water in with whatever your cooking..So after I came home from work that day it was like chicken soup..Which is how my boyfriend described it..Lol,I hope it turns out better this time!
