Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

N2Q Nov 20, 2011 11:12 AM

Hi, Folks. Wondering if anyone has tried cooking a turkey breast (full or half, bone in / boneless) in a slow cooker? If yes, would it work in the round style cooker or should it be cooked in the oval/roaster shape. I have limited kitchen storage, and wonder if the oval shape is a better choice overall. Only cook for two people.

Thanks for the feedback, and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi - I've done it and liked the result. This is a good primer:

      I've done it ... worked well. But not every slow cooker has the same. It shouldn't make any difference whether your slow cooker is round or oval, but some have a greater temperature range than others. If the turkey will fit, without touching the sides of the vessel, it should work just fine. All you have to do is determine what temperature you need to use and how much (if any) liquid you need to add to the slow cooker.
      Here's a few ideas:
