- 1 (4-6 pound) bone-in turkey breast
- 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
- Thaw the turkey and pat it dry. If it has a gravy packet inside of it, remove it. Cut off any excess skin, but leave the skin covering the breast.
- Rub the onion soup mix all over the outside of the turkey and under the skin. Place it in your crockpot and add water till filled about an inch high. The water will help it from getting dry and will make it super moist.
- Put the lid on and cook on low for 6 1/2 hours. When it is finished it will look like this:
Some of you may be worried about the fact that there are onions in this recipe but you have onion haters at home. No worries! The soup really just adds flavor to the turkey and the pieces of onion soften up and fall right off the turkey if you need it to. Also, a lot of the onion stays on the skin, which most people don't like to eat because it gets so soft.
We like to make a turkey breast in the crockpot every now and then and the leftovers can be used for so many things! Sandwiches, chicken potpie, chicken and noodle casserole (but with turkey instead), etc. Lots of ways to use it! And turkey has a lot of protein and is really good for you. So into the Lighten Up category it goes! For dinner we served it with sweet peas. Very light and refreshing:
