Crock Pot Turkey Breast with Cranberry Sauce is the BEST turkey recipe you will every try! This turkey breast is brined for 24 hours and slow cooked for another 4-8 hours for a wonderfully flavorful and crazy juicy piece of meat, all cooked on top of a cranberry sauce that makes itself in the slow cooker. The cranberry sauce gets it richness and flavor from the turkey drippings as well as Chambord and orange juice for a unique sauce that pairs perfectly with the turkey. Not only is this turkey delicious, but it is low-calorie, low-fat and low-carb for something you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying this Thanksgiving and Christmas. I promise you, if you give this recipe a try, you will never look at turkey the same way again!
I have long dreaded the dried out and bland turkey that is too often served at Thanksgiving, but no more! This brine and the slow cooking process allow the meat to retain it’s juices in addition to absorbing some of the great flavors of the brine and cranberry sauce. Even after reheating the meat the next day, my husband was in awe at how great the turkey tasted. Please, I beg you, give this recipe a shot. While it may take a few extra steps, it is completely and totally worth it.
