Crock Pot Turkey-success!

Prep time: 8 minutes

Cook time: 8 to 9 hours


1 package (6-oz) cubed herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1 cup sliced celery (2 medium stalks)
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning, if desired
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
2 lb bone-in turkey or chicken thighs, skin removed (I used a turkey breast)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 jar (12-oz) turkey gravy


In a bowl, mix stuffing mix, celery, onion and poultry seasoning. Stir in broth to moisten and then stir in the cranberries.

Spoon half of the stuffing into cooker and sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper. Place over stuffing. Put remaining stuffing around the turkey.

Cover and cook on Low heat for 8 to 9 hours.

About 15 minutes before serving, remove turkey from cooker and keep warm. Stir stuffing and cooking juices until mixed. Cover and let stand about 10 minutes.

Heat gravy on stove.

I cooked the turkey for 7 hours and it was great!
