Turkey Thighs "Pot Roast" Style (slow cooker)

Mikekey *


Depending on size of thighs and how many you cook (do not overcrowd the slow cooker), this feeds 2-6 people. This is a great dish to quench those turkey cravings without cooking a whole turkey dinner. Great for shopping days, too. Put in on, go shopping, and come home to a hot meal.
