Slow Cooker  Smothered Turkey

Sometimes you just want a home cooked comforting meal.  You actually want some turkey, but you don't want to turn on your oven.  Well, just use your slow cooker or crockpot. It is so much easier than you think.  You can actually set up your pot the night before and turn it on the next morning, go to work and when you get back home, you'll have one of the most delicious meals you've had in a long time.  And you'll have some leftovers for lunch.  


  • Turkey is a rich source of protein.

  • Skinless turkey is low in fat. White meat is lower in kilojoules and has less fat than the dark meat. A typical turkey consists of 70 percent white meat and 30 percent dark meat.

  • Turkey meat is a source of iron, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus.

  • It is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body's energy production.

  • Regular turkey consumption can help lower cholesterol levels. The meat is low-GI and can help keep insulin levels stable.

  • Turkey contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system.

  • It is also a source of selenium, which is essential for thyroid hormone metabolism. It also boosts immunity and acts as an antioxidant.

Turkey is delicious at anytime, so enjoy it whenever you want it.  But smothered turkey is a treat, a pure treat so every so often treat yourself to some smothered turkey.

Seasoning for Turkey

Wash and pat dry the turkey pieces.  Season them with your favorite seasonings.  I use ranch dressing, poultry seasonings, paprika, onion powder, garlic and parsley, salt and pepper to taste.  Use some chicken or turkey broth and you need some all purpose flour.

Add the seasoned turkey to the slow cooker.  Sprinkle with some flour add some onion and add the broth to the pot.  Put the pot on high for at least 5 hours or low for at least 8 hours.  The time changes depending on how much meat you have in the pot.  Walk away and when you come back you'll think it's Thanksgiving!  Enjoy.
