"How To Make Turkey Breast in the Slow Cooker

Serves 6 to 8

What You Need

Ingredients

For the herb butter:
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, minced
Finely grated zest of 1 medium lemon
2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh sage leaves
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the turkey:
1 (5- to 7-pound) bone-in, skin-on turkey breast, thawed if frozen 
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
1 medium lemon, quartered (use the zested one from the butter)
1 head garlic, halved crosswise
3 fresh thyme sprigs
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

Equipment

Measuring cups and spoons
Knife and cutting board
Zester
Spatula
Small mixing bowl
Kitchen shears
Paper towels
6-quart slow cooker
Probe or instant-read thermometer
Rimmed baking sheet

Instructions
  1. Make the herb butter. Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and smash with the back of a fork to combine.
  2. Dry the turkey breast and rub with the herb butter. Trim off any excess skin and fat, but leave the skin covering the turkey breast. Pat very dry with paper towels. Use your fingers to separate the skin from the meat but not remove it completely, then rub half of the herb butter onto the meat under the skin, making sure to reach all the way back to season every bit of the meat. Spread the remaining half of the compound butter over the outside of the turkey breast.
  3. Add broth and aromatics to the slow cooker. Pour the broth into a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the bay leaves, onion, halved head of garlic, peppercorns, zested lemon quarters, and thyme.
  4. Slow cook the turkey breast until 165°F. Place the turkey breast on top of the aromatics. Cover and cook until the thickest part of the turkey breast reaches 165°F on a probe or instant-read thermometer, 4 to 5 hours on the LOW setting, or 3 to 4 hours on the HIGH setting.
  5. Prepare the broiler. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the broiler to HIGH.
  6. Broil turkey until skin is golden and crisp. Transfer the turkey breast to a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until the skin is golden and crisp, 7 to 9 minutes.
  7. Rest the turkey on a cutting board. Transfer the turkey breast to a cutting board. Let the turkey rest in a warm place so that the juices can redistribute in the meat, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make gravy with the drippings if desired with this method.
  8. Carve the turkey. Carve the turkey by slicing down the each side of the breastbone and along the curve of the wishbone. Then work your knife between the meat and the ribs, keeping the knife as close to the bone as possible, to remove the breast meat. After the meat is removed from the bone, cut crosswise into slices.
Recipe Notes
  • Storage: Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  • Make ahead: The herb butter can be made up to 3 months in advance and frozen. Bring to room temperature before using. You can rub the turkey with the herb butter 1 day in advance of cooking."
