Ingredients

  • 2 (5 pounds) bone-in turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 lemons, sliced
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 cup water

For gravy:

  • 4 cups pan drippings, adding additional chicken stock if needed to make 4 cups
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Instructions

  1. Spray the slow cooker crock with nonstick cooking spray, and pour the water into the bottom of the crock.
  2. Placed the lemon slices and fresh herbs around the bottom and sides of the crock.
  3. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, salt, thyme leaves, and black pepper together to make a rub.
  4. Take ½ of the butter and rub under the skin of the turkey. Next rub half of the dry seasoning under the skin.
  5. Using the last half of the dry seasonings, be sure to cover all sides of the turkey breast.
  6. Cook on low for 6 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  7. For crispier skin, preheat the broiler of the oven. Transfer the turkey to a baking sheet.
