Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

January 23, 2014

By Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

For the busy and/or working cook of the family, this recipe is a life saver! 

Dump the ingredients in a crockpot before you head out the door for the day and come back home to wonderful aromas and a delicious meal.

It doesn’t have to be a holiday to serve succulent turkey breast for your meal and, the best part, this recipe will yield enough for leftovers, so you can plan other meals for the week with the turkey already done (leftover turkey quesadillas anyone?).

If you don’t have a large enough crockpot for the size of the turkey breast – no worries – just get a smaller turkey breast!

Serves 12-14

8lb turkey breast
1.5 tblsp onion powder
1 tblsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp paprika (smoked is even better!)
1.5 tblsp garlic powder
1 tblsp sea salt
3/4 c organic, low sodium broth (optional)*

Rinse off turkey breast, pat dry and place in crockpot.
Sprinkle with paprika (this will give it a nice golden color).
Mix the rest of the seasonings and sprinkle over the entire turkey breast.
Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.
(*No liquid needed, the turkey will create its own juices.  But if you want some extra liquid for gravy, add 3/4 cup organic, low sodium broth)

Serve with your favorite roasted vegetable or rice.
