Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1-2 bay leaves
    1 medium onion, quartered
    3 cups no fat/low sodium chicken broth
    4 - 5 whole black peppercorns
    2 - 3 lb fresh "raw" turkey breast with skin removed

Tips

Please note that the turkey will NOT look like the picture. The turkey is basically boiled in the chicken broth and will be tender and flavorful. You can slice and serve or shred and use in casseroles, etc.


Directions

Remove skin and all visible fat. Place the turkey breast in the crockpot, add onion quarters, bay leaf, and peppercorns. Cover with chicken broth.

Turn crockpot on high for the first hour and then to low for 6-8 hours.

Remove from broth and serve. Turkey will be moist and delicious!

    I used a 3lb. turkey breast. Sprayed crock pot with olive oil spray. layered bottom of crock with pieces of whole wheat toast with chopped onion and chopped celery. Rubbed the turkey with olive oil then poultry seasoning, basil, sage and rosemary and laid turkey on top of toast mixture. Awesome! - 1/2/14

    over 1000 mg of sodium per serving?!?!?! that certainly isn't healthy at all. If you are using the slow cooker, you don't need any broth at all. just roast on low... it should be juicy without all the broth and sodium. - 11/26/13

    Thank you for your reply. You are correct. However, I use fat free, low sodium chicken broth for flavor and I use a fresh turkey breast without skin. I adjusted recipe to reflect "raw" turkey and low sodium broth. I used preloaded nutritional info for the raw turkey but am not sure it's accurate.

    I've tried to do a turkey breast in the crockpot, and there is no way you're going to get crispy-looking skin like in the picture. The breast was moist, but the skin will be like rubber. - 11/26/13

    Thank you for your reply. I have since edited my recipe to let others know that the skin should be removed. This is a "low fat" recipe and yields a moist and delicious turkey that can be served on it's own or shredded for sandwiches/casseroles.
