Whole turkeys from Jennie-O should not be prepared in a Crock-Pot or any type of slow cooker. Because of the size of a turkey, you will overfill the slow cooker and increase the risk of food-borne illness. Choose the oven-ready breast from Jennie-O to make in your slow cooker. The breast includes Jennie-O's Fool-Proof cooking bag, a product that allows you to heat the turkey without any thawing, cleaning or seasoning.

Step 1

Take the turkey breast out of the freezer. Remove the packaging from the turkey. Leave the turkey inside the cooking bag included with your purchase.

Step 2

Cut three slits in the top of the cooking bag that contains the frozen turkey breast. Each slit should measure approximately ½ inch.

Step 3

Place the turkey breast in the 5- to 6-qt. slow cooker. Cover with the slow cooker lid.

Step 4

Set the desired temperature on the slow cooker. Remove the turkey from the slow cooker after 4 1/2 hours if cooked on high or 6 1/2 hours if using the low setting.
