  • Summary

    I've tried a handful of other methods over the years. This has produced the juiciest turkey breast by far, without brining the breast in advance. Plus slow cooking generally is very forgiving so you don't need to be spot on with the cooking time. The juices that pool in the slow cooker has extra flavour from the garlic and onion so it makes a fantastic gravy. SCALE RECIPE by moving slider on Servings to adjust for different turkey weights.
