This crockpot turkey and dressing is made with only four ingredients. This recipe is a simple combination of boneless turkey breast and prepared stuffing mix and it's made super easy in the slow cooker.

Feel free to prepare the dressing separately on the stovetop.

What You'll Need

  • 1 boneless turkey breast, about 3 pounds, completely thawed in the refrigerator
  • 1 package stuffing mix, prepared (about 6 to 8 ounces dry mix)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

How to Make It

  1. Place the turkey breast in the crockpot or slow cooker with the chicken broth.
  2. Combine the stuffing mix with 1/2 cup of chicken broth and 2 tablespoons of melted butter; pack on or around the turkey, patting down, but not packing it tight.
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Reduce the setting to  LOW and cook for about 4 to 6 hours longer, or until turkey is very tender. Or, continue cooking on HIGH for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  1. If the dressing gets too soggy, remove it and spread in a shallow greased pan. Bake in a 400 F oven for about 30 minutes, or until brown and crusty. 

Serves 4.

Expert Tips

  • According to the USDA, turkey and other poultry must be cooked to a minimum safe temperature of 165 F. If in doubt, use a reliable instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the turkey breast.
  • If you prepare the dressing separately, you can make homemade gravy with the cooking liquids. Strain the liquid into a gravy separator and skim off excess fat. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and cook for 2 minutes while stirring constantly. Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of the turkey cooking liquids to the saucepan and cook, stirring, until thickened.
