Crockpot Turkey Breast

I'll let you in on a little secret -- even if I am entertaining a lot of people for Thanksgiving, I still make my turkey this way. I just fire up two crockpots!!! The meat is incredibly tender and no one can argue with such a low maintenance technique. And you better believe that the juices that collect at the bottom of the crockpot makes the world's most wonderful gravy!
  • 1 medium turkey breast, thawed in the refrigerator
  • 1/4 c. apple cider
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. cracked rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground chipotle pepper

Remove any gravy or giblet packets from the cavity of the turkey breast and discard or save for another use. Place the breast in a large crockpot. (You may have to do some creative trimming to get it to fit -- it's worth it.) Pour the apple cider into the bottom of the crockpot.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and rub over the top of the turkey breast. Cover the crockpot and cook on the LOW setting for 7-9 hours or until the meat is cooked and tender.
