It is easy to cook a turkey breast in a crockpot. Your turkey breast will come out moist and full of flavor. This is a guide about cooking a turkey breast in a slow cooker.
On days when you're in a rush but still would like to come home to the welcoming aroma of a homecooked meal, you might want to try this. Put a frozen turkey breast in your slow cooker. Dump a package of onion soup mix on it. Turn the cooker on high and it will be done when you get home after work. Whip up some stuffing mix and open a can of green beans and you have a feast with little effort. (I use one of the West Bend Slow Cookers that has a base and the rectangular pot sits on top of it.) If you are hesitant about leaving it cooking while you're gone, you can always put it on the night before and it will be ready when you get up. Just be sure to refrigerate it before you leave.

Any water added after adding a dry soup mix?
I was wondering what to do with a turkey breast I have in the freezer, I am going to try this,thanks. Do you add any water or broth?
I don't think you're supposed to leave the crockpot on high the whole time you're gone. When I cook my turkey breast, I cook it on low for 8-10 hrs or on high for 4-5 hrs. I don't add any water or broth as you wind up with a lot of liquid without adding any extra.
Whenever turkey breasts are on sale for 99 cents a pound, I like this recipe. Spray the inside of your crockpot with Pam and place unwrapped breast in it. Then take a can of whole berry cranberry sauce and spread over the breast. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. It is very delicious and makes great meat for sandwiches. Enjoy!

Great idea. I love crock pot recipes especially easy ones. I do the same thing with whole chickens when they are on sale. Put it in the crock pot, add one cup of katsup & one cup of coke and let it cook all day. It just falls off the bones.
I read your crock pot turkey recipe, I am a little confused, when you say put in unwrapped, do you man still in the cardboard wrapped, as you get it from the store/ sounds good and will wait for your answer. Thank you, Mel
I am confused. The recipe says "unwrapped breast". What does this mean? I am assuming I am to leave the skin on, correct? Will this work with a bine-in turkey breast? This sounds wonderful.
Plus I am sure it would work with turkey thighs and other meats as well.
