Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours
Total Time: 7 hours, 20 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
- 1-1/2 cups wild rice
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 2 apples, chopped
- 3 cups water (or, for a six ingredient recipe, chicken broth)
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 3-4 lb. boneless whole turkey breast, thawed if frozen
Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours until turkey is thoroughly cooked and reaches 160 degrees on a meat thermometer, and wild rice is tender and popped.
Note: Make sure that the wild rice you use in this recipe has long grains and is of very high quality. Do not buy cheap rice with broken grains. That type of wild rice will always be mushy no matter how it is cooked.
