Without a doubt, this is the easiest, safest and tastiest way to cook turkey breast without brining. Then use the juices to make a killer gravy! Turkey breast is notoriously lean so the only way to guarantee it comes out juicy if you roast it in the oven is to brine it — dry or wet brine.
Fill your ovens with other important things this Thanksgiving and let your slow cooker take on most of the work! Now, while I WISH that a slow cooker can magically create a crispy, golden browned skin like this one, your broiler will take care of that for the last minutes this turkey needs to get all golden browned. All up?
Slow Cooker Turkey Breast is perfect as Thanksgiving dinner for two or serves as an easy meal prep idea. Crock pot turkey breast is easy and delicious! Take this bone-in turkey breast, for example.
There's no point in cooking a huge turkey for only two or three people unless you like having pounds of leftover meat and some people do! If you have someone in your family who is in a group that is high risk for food poisoning elderly, very young, pregnant, or with a chronic illnessthis may not be the one for you. Food safety experts recommend that frozen meats should not be cooked in the slow cooker because the meat can warm up too gradually and bacteria can grow in the product. Please note the different cooking times if you're using a bone-in or boneless breast.
