Turkey in slow cookerThe method of a slow cooking turkey is really alluring. If you leave it to cook for a very long time (may be overnight) on low heat, you finally end up with a moist, tender, succulent, and yummy turkey. Turkey breast instead of the whole turkey tastes best, when it comes to cooking using a slow cooker or a crockpot. Trail down to learn the procedure involved.


 


 


 



Things Required:


  • Raw turkey (preferably breast)

  • Strainer

  • Water

  • A slow cooker


 


Directions:


  • Take the required quantity of turkey either as a whole or as specific parts/pieces.

  • Clean and remove the inedible parts of the turkey.

  • Put the portions in a strainer and wash them twice with hands.

  • Set the clean turkey in the slow cooker above a layer of fat or oil and any other ingredient of the recipe (veggies if any)

  • Pour adequate water (add salt if required) and immerse the turkey in it. Always use 3-4 times the volume of water to the turkey.

  • If the setting is high cook for about 3-5 hrs and if the setting is low cook for about 8 hrs until it becomes tender at 180 degree temperature.

Do's And Don'ts:

  • Pour water as required since more water may cause over flowing and less water may lead to undercooking.


 


So make your Thanksgiving or Christmas celebration remarkable, with lip-smacking turkey dishes using the slow cooker.
