Easy Crock Pot Thanksgiving Turkey


This is SO simple yet so delicious. Don’t want to go through the whole hassle of putting a full turkey in the oven and having to carve it and worry if it’s going to turn out well? Well this is for you then! This is a set it and forget it kind of recipe. It will be a big smash on Thanksgiving day for sure! It is also an easy recipe you can use all year long for those turkey lovers out there.

My favorite thing about this recipe is everything! The ease, the taste-it’s just that good!

Ingredients:

  • 3-6 lb boneless turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 clove Garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper


Depending on the time you have, you may want to thaw the turkey breast if frozen. We actually just cooked it frozen it just took a little longer.

First, mix the orange juice, onion soup mix, garlic, poultry seasoning, and cranberry sauce in a liquid measuring cup so you can pour it over the turkey. Add your turkey breast to the crock pot and then pour your mixture over the breast. Then add your salt and pepper over the whole thing.


I cooked it on high for 2 hours since it was frozen, then low for 4 hours. If the turkey is thawed you can cook it on low for 6-8 hours depending on how big of a turkey breast you have.

When a thermometer inserted into the center reads 180 it’s done! Remember to let it rest at least 5 minutes before slicing so the juices can settle, otherwise it might be dry if all the juices run out if you cut it right away.

That’s it! How easy was that? Enjoy with all of your favorite Thanksgiving fixings.

Remember to Save some of the juices to make a delicious gravy!
