Ingredients
  

FOR THE TURKEY BREAST
  • 1 (6-pound) turkey breast, bone-in and skin-on
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
FOR THE TURKEY GRAVY
  • 2 cups liquid from turkey drippings
  • 1/4 cup flour

Instructions
 

  • Place the turkey breast in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together honey, soy sauce, oil, ginger, cinnamon, ground cloves, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  • Pour the mixture over the turkey breast and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour; turn the turkey and continue to marinate breast side up for 1 more hour.
  • Transfer the turkey and the marinade to the pot/bowl of your slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours. The turkey is done when it reaches 165°F in the thickest part of the breast meat.
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Remove ceramic pot from the slow cooker; take the ceramic pot, with the turkey breast in it, and put it in the oven.
  • Continue to cook for 30 minutes, basting the turkey breast every 5 minutes, until the pop-up timer in the turkey breast pops.
  • Remove turkey from oven and reserve 2 cups of the liquid. If you don't have full 2 cups of liquid left over, add chicken broth to make 2 cups.
FOR THE TURKEY GRAVY
  • Put the flour in a saucepan; slowly pour and whisk in the turkey drippings.
  • Set the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil while constantly whisking.
  • Lower the heat to a simmer and continue to whisk until thickened; about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour it into a gravy boat.
  • Serve with the turkey breast.

Notes

  • Putting the turkey in the oven is completely optional; if you don't want to do that, just let the turkey finish cooking in the slow cooker until the pop-up timer in the turkey breast pops.
