Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast with Gravy
You don’t need a whole bird to create a satisfying version of this holiday classic. But you do need to figure out how to make a rich, savory gravy in the slow cooker.
Why This Recipe Works
With the help of the slow cooker, turkey with gravy is no longer just for the holidays. Using just the turkey breast makes this recipe weeknight friendly, and the gentle heat of the slow cooker ensures that the white meat is tender and moist—not dried out. Browning the turkey skin creates flavorful drippings for the gravy, and putting an extra-thick roux-and-broth mixture into the slow cooker at the outset means that once it combines with the turkey juices, the resulting gravy is the perfect consistency.
