Today I successfully tried an experiment: I decided to cook a turkey breast in my crock-pot. Since I have a round crock, I ended up cooking a half turkey breast, as it was plenty for my husband and I, and I knew that a full one would never fit in my pot. It turned out very easy and yummy, so I thought I'd share the recipe and hopefully you can enjoy my experiment as well.
First I coated the bottom of my crock-pot with olive oil. Then I sliced up a sweet onion into four large slices (the saucer-like slices, not the quarters). I put the slices on the bottom of the pot for the turkey to rest on. Then I poured in about 20 oz of chicken broth (2/3 of a carton).
Then I washed and patted dry my turkey breast. I rubbed olive oil all over it and then sprinkled on some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then I crushed 3 fresh garlic cloves and put them on the turkey as well. Then I put the turkey in the crock-pot, put on the cover, and turned it on high.
While my turkey breast was cooking I played a board game with my husband, did some laundry, and crocheted a bit. No sweat over what we were having for dinner!
After 3.5 hours the 1/2 turkey breast was done. It had an amazing flavor and made enough meat for leftovers this week. So good and I had to do so little to prepare it. I can definitely see this being a staple meal when I have children to care for a less time to prepare dinner.
