Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Ingredients :

For the Turkey :

  • 1 turkey breast on the bone (about 3 lbs)
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 medium sized yellow onion
  • 5 strings of fresh thyme
  • 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tablespoon of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

For the Gravy :

  • 1/3 to a 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons of corn starch
  • Juice from half a lemon (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions :

For the Turkey :

Cut your garlic head in a half

Cut onion in 4 large pieces

Add all of the above to the bottom of the slow cooker

Place the turkey breast on top of the garlic, onion and lemon

Sprinkle the top with the spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika

Spoon over Extra Virgin Olive oil on top of the turkey and half the lemon.

Bundle up the herbs and add to the slow cooker

Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours

For the Gravy :

Once the turkey is done, you can take it out along with all the veggies and herbs.

The sauce will contain fat on the top – remove it so the gravy is not too heavy

Pour the sauce in a small saucepan

Bring it to boil

In a cup mix together milk with corn starch

Add to sauce and cook until thickened up (See note 1 below)

Check for seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed
