Slow Cooker Turkey and Gravy

If you have a large slow cooker and love the dark meat (legs and thighs) you could butcher your raw turkey into sections and add the sections to the slow cooker. A whole turkey will be too large for a standard slow cooker. This recipe also works in an electric roaster set to 300F. If you plan to cook a larger turkey be sure to adjust the gravy ratios accordingly to avoid a dry bird! 

**Important!** I used a bone-in, skin on, butterball turkey breast which releases enough juice on it’s own to help create a gravy. If you are using boneless, skinless breast or tenderloins you will need to add one to two cups of chicken stock to the crock-pot to help make the gravy.

  • Nestle your turkey breast in the slow cooker and drizzle the olive oil over top. Sprinkle the parsley, sage, celery seed, salt and pepper over the turkey breast and rub it in all over the turkey breast.
  • Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or until the internal temperature of the turkey breast has reached 165°F.
  • When the turkey is done remove from the slow cooker, discard the skin, and shred the meat.
  • In a standing blender or by using an immersion blender blend together all the broth and vegetables in the slow cooker until smooth.

Everyone loved this! They were hesitant at first because it’s not the traditional turkey but they all stayed very quite while they stuffed their faces with it. It was super juicy!
