Slow Cooker Mediterranean Roast Turkey

Discovered this recipe on -- The turkey looks great without the mashed potatoes and comes in at a whopping 55g protein per serving. Turkey is rich in amino acids which build strong bones and muscles and strengthen the immune system! What could be better at the end of the day than a delicious serving of tender roast turkey? Enjoy!

Serve this slow cooker roast with mashed potatoes and garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.


8 servings (serving size: about 4 ounces turkey and about 1/3 cup onion mixture)


  • 2 cups chopped onion (about 1 large)
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup julienne-cut drained oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning mix (such as McCormick's) OR 1 teaspoon You Have Arrived 2009 Autumnal Seasoning Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (4-pound) boneless turkey breast, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour


Combine first 9 ingredients in an electric slow cooker. Add 1/4 cup chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.

Combine remaining 1/4 cup broth and flour in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add broth mixture to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes. Cut turkey into slices.
