How to slow cook turkey breasts

Weight (pounds) 3-5 5-7 7-9
Oven Time (hours) 1 – 2 ¼ 2 ¼ – 3 3 – 3 ½
Slow Cook (high) 3 – 4 4 – 5 5 – 6
Slow Cook (low) 5 – 6 6 – 7 7 – 8

NOTE: We highly recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure doneness as every slow cooker cooks differently. Internal temperature needs to be 165°F in both the thickest part of the breast (without touching the bone) and in the thighs to ensure doneness and food safety.

  • Tip #1

    Cook turkey breasts skin side up.

  • Tip #2

    The skin of the breast can also be brushed with cooking oil to promote browning and enhance flavor.

  • Tip #3

    1/2 cup of liquid (water, broth, wine) can be used to add moisture and prevent the meat from sticking to the pot’s surface.
