This week's recipe is both easy and elegant enough to serve the in-laws. The flavors are great and as a bonus- its gluten free! Several of my friends have had to go the gluten free route lately for various reasons, so it always makes me happy to see really good and easy gluten free recipes.Cranberry and Rice Stuffed Turkey breast was really fast to put together and tasted great. We had it with steamed garlic asparagus and tossed green salad. If I would just remember to get those slow cooker liners the cleanup would have taken less than 5 minutes!
The first thing to do is remove the skin from the turkey breast. It should peel off really easily.
After skinning the turkey breast, cut several slits about 3/4 of the way through and 1/2 inch apart.
Take the stuffing mixture and press it into the cuts
Place the stuffed turkey breast in the slow cooker and cover.
Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Unless of course you have a blazing hot slow cooker like idea that cooks at warp speed. My turkey breast was overdone in 3 hours. :( The flavor was great, but it was just a bit dry. I need to remember to adjust the cook times in my flame cooker.
You can also add an additional glaze of more preserves and worcestershire sauce.
The flavor was slightly sweet with a bit of heat from the cajun flavoring. I will definitely be going to the store to stock up on frozen turkey breasts before they disappear after the holidays.
Let me know if you try it and what variations you attempt! Next time I am thinking possibly blueberry?
