Slow Cooker Turkey Breast Recipe

If your family is asking for a classic turkey dinner, but you don't have the time and energy, this Slow Cooker Turkey Breast Recipe is a great option. Pair it with your favorite sides and you've got a winner winner turkey dinner.

My family loves turkey, but I just can’t bear to man handle that raw bird and prepare it for them. I knew there had to be a better solution, and this recipe was born!

How to Make Slow Cooker Turkey Breasts

This recipe is so so simple.  Begin by rinsing your turkey breasts and patting them dry.

Next, rub the turkey breasts with olive oil and then rub the dry onion soup mix onto each breast until they are covered completely.

Place the turkey breasts in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low.

Check your turkey occasionally to make sure it does not dry out!

Additional Liquid in the Crock pot?

Surprisingly? No! You don’t need any additional liquid in the slow cooker with the turkey breasts.

If you think it’s too good to be true, you can add a little water in the bottom of your crock pot.

You may also consider adding carrots, onions, or celery to the slow cooker for added flavor, especially if you plan to use the drippings to make a gravy.

Where can I find Turkey Breasts?

If you’ve never cooked turkey breasts before, you may be wondering where to find them.  It seems like the traditional, full-sized turkey is what most people are familiar with finding in the grocery store.

We found our turkey breasts in the deli section.  They have lots of Jennie O products, including turkey breasts, ground turkey, etc.

If you are still having troubles finding it, check out your freezer section, or ask an employee at the grocery store.

Pair it with your Favorite Sides:

Turkey goes well with so many delicious sides.  What are your favorites? Here are some of ours:

    • Hey Starsky99.. I just thought I would tell you I have cooked a whole bone in breast in the crock pot... it does make some juice of its own and the only adjustment is time...It takes longer.It took between 7-8 hrs on low for mine I used them 5-7lbs...and I pulled the skin up and put the soup mix directly on the breast.. I have made it more than a couple times. I have also thrown some veggies in the bottom like celery onion and carrots then used the broth that happens and make a gravy.
  1. I made this recently with just the turkey breast alone and it was one of the best things I've ever cooked!! I did not add any liquid, and there was enough liquid after cooking for gravy and freezing some stock. I don't recall how long I left it in the slow cooker, but it was so flavorful! I can't wait to make it again. Thank you for all of your wonderful posts!! :)
  2. I've roasted a couple of ol' 5lb hens in my crockpot without any liquid and it comes out nice 'n juicy, it takes about 4 hrs on high, the only drawback was the skin didn't brown, so the next time I'm gonna see if my heatgun will give that chick a tan, I might dress her in a bikini and ogle 'er tan lines when she's done. Oh, and I place a couple small glass ashtrays in the bottom to keep the bird out of the schmaltz, and there's quite a bit too, so you can make stock for soups or gravy. Adios n' Hasta La Bye Bye!
  3. Made this and was surprised how juicy the bird was! Did stuff cavity with carrots, onions and celery, but just used onion soup & water & Mrs. Dash-great flavor. Drippings made wonderful gravy. Forget roasting, this is the only way to do a turkey!!!
