Tuscan Turkey

My original name for this was going to be Italian Turkey Breast but Tuscan Turkey just seemed to roll off the tongue so much easier.  This was perfect for game day.  Before the games started, I got this ready for the crock pot and it was ready to go for that little span between the games.





Tuscan Turkey

1/2 turkey breast, skin on
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Italian seasonings, crushed
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Melt the butter in the bottom of your crock pot.  Stir in the chicken broth and lemon juice.  Place turkey breast in the pot.  Rub the top of the breast with the olive oil and then the freshly crushed Italian seasonings.  Top with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Cook slowly over medium low heat for 6 hours.  Make sure the internal temperature is 165°.
