A Downsized Turkey That's Just as Juicy
If you have a smaller crowd to feed for the holidays, a turkey breast is a great alternative to roasting a whole bird. A three-pound breast feeds four to six people, and fits in a six-quart slow cooker (the average size for these appliances), freeing up valuable oven space for sides. And if you're worried that the meat will dry out over the course of the four- to five-hour cook time, fear not: Wilkes has you slide an herb-and-butter mixture under the skin before cooking, so the meat stays moist (and gets an extra boost of flavor).
