1/2 cup onion
1/4 cup of chicken broth

2 Tablespoons of butter (melted)
Rosemary, Sage and Thyme

Directions:

Before Cooking

(1) Add the diced carrot, celery, garlic, onion and broth to the crock pot and stir.
(2) Rinse the turkey breast. Rub onion soup mix all over outside of the turkey and under the skin. Place in a slow cooker.
(3) Melt your 2 tablespoons of butter and pour it over the turkey
(4) sprinkle the top of the turkey with rosemary, sage and thyme
(5) Cover and cook on high for 1 hour and then Low for an additional 6 to 7 hours (depending on the size of the bird). For safety, the inside of the turkey breast should be 165 degrees or higher when done.
