Three Ingredient Crockpot Turkey

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Think about using different types of fruit sauces in this super easy crockpot three ingredient turkey entree recipe. Please note the different cooking times if you're using a bone-in or boneless breast.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 7 hours

Total Time: 7 hours, 5 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 frozen turkey breast, NOT thawed bone-in (about 5 pounds) or boneless (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 lb. can cranberry sauce
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix


For bone-in turkey, put all ingredients into 5-6 quart crockpot, cover, and cook for 2 hours on high. Then reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 4-5 hours until turkey registers 170 degrees F on instant meat thermometer. (Some sources now say that 165 degrees F is acceptable for a safe temperature).

For boneless turkey breast, follow instructions above. When you reduce the crockpot heat to low, start checking the turkey after 1-2 hours. It may only need that much time to reach 170 degrees F.

Slice turkey breast and serve with sauce.

3 ingredient turkey, Guest Lori91761

Although this was the first time I'd used this sauce with Turkey, it came out very good and my hubby used the remaining sauce on his baked potato. I've used this sauce recipe off and on for many years. It's great on chicken, pork roast or ribs, all forms of beef, etch and SO E-Z. Thanks for sharing it.
