Why This Recipe is Best
This Crockpot Turkey Breast recipe is one of our favorites. I buy the turkey breast in the freezer section and we make this YEAR ROUND.
- No time to prep a full size turkey, this one is an easy alternative!
- Or maybe you have a smaller crowd, limited oven space, or just don’t love as much turkey as other families.
- The best part is that the stuffing cookies right on top, so it’s literally ONE dirty dish.
This leaves you plenty of oven space for all your other favorite sides, like sweet potato casserole and mac and cheese!
How to Cook a Turkey Breast in a Crock Pot
STEP 1: Lay THAWED turkey breasts in bottom of slow cooker. Pour chicken broth over turkey breasts.
STEP 2: Place cubed bread in a large bowl. We love using day old french bread for our homemade stuffing recipe!
STEP 3: Add apple, celery, onion, salt, poultry seasoning, sage, and black pepper to the bowl with bread cubes. Mix thoroughly.
STEP 4: Lightly press stuffing on top of the turkey breasts and broth in the slow cooker.
STEP 5: Cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours.
STEP 6: Remove stuffing and place on serving platter. Slice turkey breast and arrange over the dressing. ENJOY.
Tips and Tricks
- Use a large oval slow cooker, as a round one won’t be big enough!
- Be sure you start with DEFROSTED turkey breast. Depending on the size of the breast, you may need to defrost in refrigerator for several days. Be prepared.
- If you want to make a gravy, double the chicken broth in the recipe. When you remove the turkey and stuffing, thicken up the slurry of cornstarch and water. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- You’ll know the turkey breast is done cooking when it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
- If you haven’t tried it, you can also make Turkey breast with gravy in the Instant Pot.
How much Turkey breast do I need per person?
It really depends on how many other side dishes you are serving.
I usually plan on 1 lb of turkey breast per person, this leaves plenty for leftovers.
The nice thing about cooking turkey breast in the crockpot is you can add more turkey if needed. As long as you keep the crock pot closed while cooking, it can be very forgiving and not yield a dry, over cooked turkey.
Aside from the dressing already in the slow cooker, we love having these Baked Mashed Potatoes. Don’t forget the Green Bean Casserole and the Corn Casserole!
A frozen Cranberry Salad is our go-to “jell-o” dish, and of course this Ritz cracker mac and cheese is a must!
For Thanksgiving, don’t forget the Pumpkin Dump cake, this easy Pumpkin Cheesecake, and of course, these adorable Turkey Rice Krispie Treats!
Use up leftover turkey in these delicious Turkey Sliders or Turkey Noodle Soup!

If I add cut sweet potatoes on top will this still work?
can this be cooked on high?
Do you have a recipe for cornbread dressing?
I do not, but it’s on my list this year!
Is the Stuffing soggy? I want to make gravy so if I add the extra broth with it make the stuffing soggy?
Love reviewing your recipes!! I want to make Crockpot Turkey Breast and Stuffing with more than one 3lb breast for leftovers I read that you mentioned go ahead and add more. Should I just put 2 breasts side by side, if they fit, or just find one breast larger than 3 lbs.? I haven’t hunted them at store, so I will see what is available. Just wanted to ask. The banana pudding looks great and frozen cranberry salad, will try them soon!!
Thanks a bunch!!
If you have an Instant Pot larger than a 6qt you should be able to fit two of them (it will be same cook time they just will take longer to come to pressure). Or cook one, then cook the second one after.
Could you use bag herb stuffing instead of making your own from bread crumbs? My family likes that best.
Such a fun looking recipe for Thanksgiivng! Love the ingredients and uniqueness of this recipe.
