Wild Rice Stuffed Crockpot Turkey Breast

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This delicious crockpot turkey breast is stuffed with wild rice. Many grocery stores carry boneless turkey breasts. If you can't find one, buy one and just ask the butcher to bone one for you. She's always happy to help. And please - season your food to taste. There's no excuse for bland food, and that is up to you.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 7 hours

Total Time: 7 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 2 apples, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups wild rice
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, if desired
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or cherries
  • 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


You can peel the apples or leave them unpeeled, as you wish. Chop apples coarsely and mix with wild rice, onion, garlic if using, dried cranberries, thyme, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning; place in bottom of 4-5 quart crockpot. Pour water over, making sure all wild rice is covered with water. If turkey breast is frozen, thaw it. Place turkey on top of rice mixture.

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.

So easy!, Guest all3brats

Not only was this dish so easy to put together, but it was sooooo delicious! My husband doesn't generally like the taste of turkey but he devoured his dish. I used chicken broth and a bit of white wine for my broth. I also used Herbs de Provence instead of just the Thyme. The rice had popped and really did taste like a wonderfully, savoury dressing. I had bought two boneless turkey breasts and am about to cook the second one tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!!
