  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 (2 3/4 to 3 1/4 pound) turkey breast half with bone, skinned

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 ¼ pounds new potatoes, halved

  • 8 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 2- to 3-inch-long pieces

  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • Reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • Ground pepper


  1. Combine rosemary, salt, garlic powder, thyme and pepper in a small bowl. Rub over turkey breast. Brown turkey breast on all sides in a very large skillet in hot oil over medium heat. Lightly coat the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place potatoes, carrots, onion and 1/4 cup broth in prepared cooker. Top with turkey.

  2. Cover; cook on Low for 9 hours or on High 4 1/2 hours.

  3. Remove turkey and place on cutting board. Cover turkey loosely with foil and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, using a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a serving platter; keep warm.

  4. For gravy, strain cooking liquid into a 2-cup measure. Add enough additional broth to equal 1 3/4 cups. Whisk together 1/4 cup cold broth and the flour in a medium saucepan until smooth; whisk in remaining broth mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season to taste with pepper.

  5. Cut turkey meat off the bone. Slice turkey and serve with vegetables and gravy.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
