Holiday Slow Cooker
Herbed Turkey Breast | Serves 4 to 6
When you have a smaller crowd to feed for the holidays, a turkey breast is the way to go. The herb butter rub keeps the turkey moist and so flavorful. Using the slow cooker frees up your oven space for all the Thanksgiving side dishes.
2 tbsp butter, softened
½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp dried thyme leaves
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp pepper
3 lb turkey breast, with bone and skin
¼ cup chicken broth
Mix together the butter, herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Loosen the skin on the turkey breast and rub the herbed butter mixture between the skin and meat. Add the chicken broth to a 6-quart slow cooker.
Place the turkey breast in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until it reaches 165°F.
