I love this recipe because it’s a really simple way to cook a turkey breast. And if you happen to be having a small group for Thanksgiving and want to make things a little easier on yourself, I highly recommend getting a turkey breast as opposed to a whole turkey. I used this bone-in breast, but I have also made this recipe with a smaller, boneless breast, and it works just as well.
The sauce that goes over the turkey is made with whole berry cranberry sauce, onion soup mix, orange juice, and some salt and pepper.
It’s just a matter of mixing up the ingredients, pouring it over the turkey, and turning on the slow-cooker. Six to eight hours later, you’ll have a delicious, tender, juicy turkey breast. You can’t beat that for simplicity!

Serves about 8 (depending on the size of the turkey breast you use)
1 turkey breast (can be boneless or bone-in)
1 15-ounce can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Place the turkey breast in your slow-cooker. Combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over the turkey. Cover and cook on Low 6-8 hours.
