This fix and forget it recipe for slow cooker turkey with stuffing cooks up a holiday dinner low and slow.  The perfect minimalist Thanksgiving supper.


  • 12 ounces dry stuffing
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups sliced celery
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth (see Note)
  • 12 ounces turkey or chicken gravy (yes, you can use the kind in the jar!) plus extra for serving
  • 1 two pound boneless turkey breast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning


  1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray.  Put the stuffing, onion and celery in the slow cooker and stir together.  Pour butter, 1 cup chicken broth and the gravy over the stuffing mixture and stir again.
  2. Make a little well in the stuffing mixture and nestle the turkey breast in it.  Pour the rest of the chicken broth over the turkey and sprinkle with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.
  3. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Remove the turkey, let it rest for about 10 minutes and then cut into slices.  Serve with stuffing on the side and warmed gravy drizzled on top.


This recipe makes a very soft and moist stuffing, which is how we love it in our house!  If you want a firmer stuffing, cut the broth back by 1/2 cup.
