Crock Pot Turkey

Deena Dooley


I am a busy working professional & mom! I am always looking for recipes for my family and I to prepare in the kitchen and then ... maximize family time. I came across a crockpot recipe one Thanksgiving and put my own recipe spin to it. It was a big hit.

How to Make Crock Pot Turkey


  • 1Wash and Dry Turkey (or turkey Breast) - leave the skin on. Set aside. Coat crockpot with olive oil.
  • 2Slice one onion in to fourths. Place onion on bottom of crockpot to make a shelf for turkey to sit on. For garlic lovers, add a few extra garlic cloves on the bottom in this step. Slice the other onion in to four wedges. Slice orange in to four wedges.
  • 3In a bowl, thoroughly mix all dry seasonings together.
  • 4Rub entire turkey (or turkey breast - both inside and out) with olive oil. Gently pull skin away from breast. Season entire turkey including under the skin. Add 2 pats of butter under the skin.
  • 5Insert onions, oranges and garlic cloves into chest cavity.
  • 6Place turkey in crockpot breast side up resting on the sliced onions.
  • 7Add chicken broth and chardonnay, trying not to wash off seasons.
  • 8This step is as per my crockpot. I have noticed that not all crockpots are alike. Adjust to your cooking crockpot time. Mine: 90minutes on high and 5 hours on low.
  • 9Gently shred turkey in crockpot and keep warm.
  • 10Very moist and juicy! Enjoy!
