Simple Slow Cooker Turkey Breast Recipe

Simple Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Turkey breast is such an amazing, versatile food.  26 grams of protein per serving, and only 110 calories!  Like I said, AMAZING!

And this easy crock pot recipe is amazing as well.  Although it’s delicious enough to stand alone, it’s also a great way to easily get cooked turkey to use in all of our amazing “turkey leftovers” recipes.

(By the way, have you ever wondered why turkey breasts are so big?  It has nothing to do with steroids or hormones, since those aren’t used on turkey farms in the United States.  Just good old fashioned breeding, better care and better nutrition!)
