Thanksgiving in March???!!!

I have this in my crock pot simmering away……….

And my kitchen smells amazing!  I came across this recipe and knew it was one I wanted to try!  I will be baking a couple of sweet potatoes to go with it and topping them with Splenda brown sugar and cinnamon!  Yummy!  A feast to behold!  Who says it has to be Thanksgiving to have turkey!  I can’t wait to take this lusciousness out of the crock pot (another easy recipe you don’t have to watch!) and enjoy this evening. 

Crock Pot Turkey Breast of Wonder

1 (5-6 lb) turkey breast

½ cup orange juice (squeeze your own or pour it out of a carton)

1 (14-0z) can whole berry cranberry sauce

1 (1-0z) package Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Salt and Pepper

 

  1.  Remove completely thawed turkey breast (and remove the gravy packet if yours has one) from wrapping.  (I usually rinse mine off also-but that’s just me!)  Place in the crock pot.
  2. Pour the ½ cup of orange juice, the can of whole berry cranberry sauce and the one package of Lipton Onion Soup mix in a small bowl and mix (I used the juice of two fresh oranges and also zested the oranges before cutting in half and added the zest to add more flavor).
  3. Mix the ingredients together and pour over the top of the turkey breast.
  4. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the top.  Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until a meat thermometer stuck into the center of the breast reads 170-175 degrees.
  5. Remove the breast to a plate and cover with foil; let it rest for 5-10 minutes.  Carve or shred.  Enjoy!
