Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 4-5 hours on high or 8-9 hours on low Serves: 8-12
2 large carrots
2 stalks celery
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon, sliced
1 ½ cups turkey or chicken broth (white wine, water, apple juice or beer can be substituted for half of the broth)
1 (6-8 pound) bone-in turkey breast
¼ cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
½ teaspoon salt and black pepper
Remove anything from instead the turkey breast cavity. Pat turkey breast dry and remove any excess fat or skin (do not completely remove all skin as this helps add flavor).
In a large, 6-8 quart crock-pot, arrange vegetables and lemon, comfortably in the bottom of the crock-pot. There is no need to chop vegetables, unless you need to do so to fit into the crock-pot. Pour in broth.
Place turkey breast on top of vegetables and broth; adjusting vegetables and turkey as needed to properly fit in crock-pot. Pour melted butter over top of turkey.
Sprinkle poultry seasoning, salt and pepper evenly over turkey.
Cover and cook for 4-5 hours on high, 8-9 hours on low, or until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads 180 degrees.
