Slow Cooker Turkey


4 lb turkey breast (I used bone-in, but you can use boneless making sure to keep netting on during cooking)
2 tbsp. butter, room temperature
2 tsp poultry seasoning
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
3 cups fat free chicken stock
1 tbsp. butter, melted

1.Remove turkey breast from packaging and rinse with cold water
2.Pat dry with paper towels and place in a large slow cooker
3.In a small bowl combine butter, poultry seasoning, pepper, garlic powder and salt
4.Rub butter mixture all over turkey, inside (if using bone-in) and out
5.Pour in chicken stock
6.Cook on low for 6 hours
7.Carefully turn turkey over and check chicken stock level and add more if necessary, stock should be about 1/4 of the way up the turkey
8.Continue cooking for an additional 2 hours, or until turkey reaches 165 degrees when an instant read thermometer is inserted into the breast meat
9.Carefully remove turkey from slow cooker and place on a shallow baking dish
10. For a more browned skin, brush melted butter over turkey and place turkey under a broiler for 5 minutes to allow it to brown up, this is optional though
