  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3 celery ribs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (6 to 7 pounds), skin removed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Place vegetables in a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker; top with turkey. Rub turkey with seasoning mixture.
  2. Cook, covered, on low until a thermometer inserted in turkey reads at least 170°, 5-6 hours. Remove from slow cooker; let stand, covered, 15 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, strain cooking juices into a small saucepan. Mix flour and water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with turkey.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Unless the recipe indicates that you should stir or add ingredients, do not lift the lid while the slow cooker is operating. Every time you lift the lid, steam escapes and you add cooking time.
