Turkey in crock pot

I am cooking a Turkey in my crock pot. It is still slightly frozen. I was wondering what seasonings to put on it. Has anyone done this before?

  • Here is my favorite Turkey recipe. Every bite tastes like an entire Thanksgiving meal melting in your mouth.

    Ingredients:
    1 boneless turkey breast (3 to 4 pounds), halved
    1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup apple juice
    1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon ground mustard
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup cold water

    Chopped celery (As much as you like)
    Chopped onions (As much as you like)
    One cup of low-sodium chicken broth (to help keep it moist)

    Directions:
    Place the turkey skin side up in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine the cranberry sauce, sugar, apple juice, vinegar, garlic, mustard, cinnamon, cloves and allspice; pour over turkey. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.

  • I have cooked turkey breasts a number of times. I would suggest you season it with whatever you like to use when you cook it in the oven.

  • Ive done whole chicken in the crock pot and just used whatever spices I had in the cabinet. Turned out awsome I might add.

  • I've done a whole turkey in the crock-pot and it comes out really moist. I just season it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and some italian spice blend. I hope yours turns out well for you.

  • I've cooked many turkey breasts in the crock pot, I just put a little salt, pepper and garlic on it.
    Add what ever seasonings you would add to like a chicken or what have you.

  • Also, I should mention that I think that recipe came from the Crock Pot group here on CM (but I'm not 100% sure of that, I've had it for a couple years now). If you aren't a member of that group, I highly recommend it. Lots of great slow cooker recipes in there.
