Crock Pot Turkey

     I mentioned this in my Menu Plan a couple of weeks ago, and I am finally getting around to posting. The plague Sickness has been going through our house, and it has been crazy! Anyway, just in time for the Big Day, I give you Crock Pot Turkey.
     My mom always hosted Thanksgiving for our family. She was in charge of the turkey and homemade noodles. In fact, my Papaw won't come unless there are homemade noodles! Somewhere along the road, she found this recipe for turkey in the crock pot, and hasn't made it another way since. It's very moist and requires no cleaning of the "yucky stuff."
    The directions here say to use a baking bag, but I didn't have one. I just put the turkey straight in the crock pot and threw in the water and butter. It is more difficult to clean up my way, and it doesn't change the flavor of the turkey in the end. 
     I have been buying a turkey breast every couple of weeks and cooking it, then dividing it into two ounce baggies to eat as a snack during the day. A 4lb turkey ($9.99 @ Aldi) gives you about 14-2oz bags, and you can freeze the ones you won't get to for a couple of days.

3-4 lb boneless turkey breast
1 stick butter
1 cup water
1 lrg baking bag (I didn't use this, but it would make it less messy to clean!)
1 Tbl flour (I didn't do this either)
  • Place 1 Tbl flour in bag and shake. 
  • Place turkey, without gravy packet, in bag.
  • Add stick of butter and water. 
  • Tie bag. Poke a few holes in top of bag to let steam escape.
  • Place bag in crock pot and let cook all day on low (7-10 hours).
  • Remove to serving dish, and pull apart with fork.
  • spoon small amount of broth over turkey and toss.
