Crock Pot Roasted Turkey Breast

Don't wait for Thanksgiving to make this delicious Crockpot Roasted Turkey Breast! We love the rub in this recipe, and use it on our holiday turkey!

Who says turkey is just for Thanksgiving? Sure, roasting a gigantic bird takes some planning and isn’t a meal that can be whipped up in the small space of time between getting home from work and plopping dinner on the table, but a turkey breast in the slow cooker is different. This recipe can give you that special turkey dinner on a weeknight.

I love cooking something in my Crock Pot that will make two dinners and then provide sandwich fixings for several days. Lunch meat is expensive, and my husband and son take a sandwich for lunch almost every day. This recipe kills two birds (Get it? BIRDS?) with one stone.

After carving this turkey breast, I threw the carcass back in the Crock Pot to make overnight turkey stock. My freezer always has frozen stock just waiting to be used instead of the canned stuff. I can’t even remember the last time I bought chicken or turkey stock, and cooking stock always makes my house smell amazing.

 

The rub we used is my mother-in-law’s special Thanksgiving turkey rub, so after you read this recipe, you’ll be considered one of us. Christmas is pretty crazy at my in-laws, so you better start saving up now to buy gifts for the tons of nieces and nephews you now have. Welcome to the family!

This recipe is incredibly easy, will feed a family of four for several days, and is only 4 Weight Watchers points. What are you waiting for?

I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this recipe.

This Crockpot Roasted Turkey Breast is made with the most incredible rub! Don't wait for Thanksgiving to make this quick and easy dinner. Your family will love it!

Ingredients
  • 1 5-6 lb turkey breast, bone in, skin on
  • 1 cup chicken stock
Rub
  • 2 tsp Mrs. Dash
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp black pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Cover turkey breast with rub, making sure to get some inside the cavity. I like to sneak some under the skin if I can.
  3. Place turkey, breast side up, in the slow cooker, along with the chicken stock.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads 170 degrees.
  5. If desired, place turkey breast into the oven, under the broiler, for a few minutes to crisp the skin.
  6. The liquid left in the slow cooker makes an incredible gravy. Don't waste that good stuff!

  1. Wow! This was SOOOOO good! Hubby though the rub was great. I didn’t have any Mrs. Dash on hand but I found a substitute recipe online and improvised. It came out super juicy, and we had plenty of drippings, etc. to make a really yummy gravy. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Two questions. I’m not much in the gravy department. Could you tell me how you made it? Also what kind of Mrs. Dash did you use? Can’t wait to try this. Thanks!

    1. Hi Alice! To make the gravy, I skimmed the dripping off, put them in a saucepan, and sprinkled about a tablespoon of flour into it. Wisk it until combined, and add in either chicken broth or water, maybe two cups. Continue stirring, and cook over medium high heat until it begins to boil. Turn the heat down to medium low, and keep stirring it for a few minutes, or until the gravy is to your desired consistency.

      Sometimes I cheat and use a gravy packet to thicken it up and add extra flavor instead of the flour.

      Good luck!

      Also, I used Mrs. Dash Original Blend.
