Cooking a turkey breast in the slow cooker is a fabulous way to make Thanksgiving dinner for a small group, or to have extra white meat if you're feeding a crowd. The crockpot makes the turkey so moist and tender. And with the combination of ingredients, this will be the best turkey you have ever made. Or eaten!

Crockpot Maple Glazed Turkey Breast is a delicious recipe with a cornbread stuffing that cooks right along with the turkey.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (8" x 8") pan cornbread, crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3-4 pound boneless turkey breast, thawed if frozen
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

Melt the butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion in the melted butter until very tender, about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the cooked onion to a large bowl and crumble in the cornbread; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

Sprinkle the turkey breast with more salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, apricot preserves, 3 tablespoons melted butter, thyme leaves, and salt and pepper to taste; mix well.

Add half of this mixture to the cornbread mixture and stir gently; place in a 4 to 5 quart slow cooker.

Place the turkey on top of the stuffing and pour the remaining maple syrup mixture over the turkey.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or until the turkey registers 165°F on a meat thermometer, basting twice with the juices in the crockpot. Serve immediately.
