Slow Cooker Honey-Soy Glazed Turkey Breast – Juicy, tender and incredibly delicious turkey breast glazed with a flavorful honey-soy mixture, and prepared in the slow cooker.
Uh Oh. Should I have named it Crock Pot? Or is Slow Cooker okay? I just had an argument about this decision with myself, and it lasted over an hour. 😕 At least we know what’s going down on Turkey Day: Slow Cooker Turkey Breast! 👏
Hiiii friends!! Nice to see you!! Guess what? It’s tiiiime! We’re only a week away and it’s finally time to think about TURKEY! AND all the things that you are grateful for. And then turkey, again. And cranberry sauce, and stuffing, and booze. 🍻 Mashed potatoes, too.
So, you probably thought about your Thanksgiving turkey long before I came into your life today with this marvelous recipe, but let’s pretend that you hadn’t the slightest clue about that Thanksgiving menu and I came to save the day. M’kay? Thanks, friend! 😘
Some of you might really want to shake me, angrily, because you need a recipe for a whole turkey and not just a 6-pound turkey breast, BUT I figured that the internetS is filled with whole turkey recipes and not enough recipes for something smaller. Trust me. I did my research. Turkey yields 125M results in Google search, and turkey breast is 7.8M. If all else fails, please refer to this post for a delicious bird that I call, Rosemary Lemon Roasted Turkey. She is a beauty!
Said in my best way possible, but are you ready to stuff your face with the most flavorful turkey breast of evvvverrrr? YAY! Meet my bird – errr, her breast – errr say what?! Okay. Let’s just meet my favorite flava flav Slow Cooker Honey-Soy Glazed Turkey Breast. 🍗🍗🍗
I love how tender and perfect my chicken cooks in the slow cooker, however I feared that this turkey deal may not turn out, but thaaaaank goodness I was wrong. This was really juicy, perfectly tender, and the flavor was on point. Honey & Soy Sauce go together like Milk & Cookies. Peas & Carrots. Cheech & Chong! You know what I’m sayin’…
Here’s what went down:
First, you have to marinate the turkey breast for at least one hour, but if you can give it three hours? Even better!
Secondly, pop her in the slow cooker and give her a good 6-ish hours on LOW.
Thirdly, pop her in the oven for another 30 minutes just to get that slightly crispy skin and the beautiful mahogany color on top.
Fourthly, take all the juice from the bottom of the slow cooker and make turkey gravy from scratch. Just pour the juices/drippings in a saucepan over a 1/4-cup flour, whisk and whisk and whisk until completely blended and thickened. 3 minutes. 4 minutes, tops!
Fifthly (👈 real word), slice the turkey breast, pop it in your mouths and make all your taste buds super duper happy! 😍
Sixthly (👈 not a real word), make my Sweet Potato and Cranberry Stuffing.
