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


  1. Wash and Dry Turkey (or turkey Breast) - leave the skin on. Set aside. Coat crockpot with olive oil.
  2. Slice 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.
  3. In a bowl, thoroughly mix all dry seasonings together.
  4. Rub 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.
  5. Insert onions, oranges and garlic cloves into chest cavity.
  6. Place turkey in crockpot breast side up resting on the sliced onions.
  7. Add chicken broth and chardonnay, trying not to wash off seasons.
  8. This 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.
  9. Gently shred turkey in crockpot and keep warm.
  10. Very moist and juicy! Enjoy!
