Slow Cooker Turkey Thighs Pot Roast Recipe

Wow; talk about sticker shock. It’s been a long time since I purchased turkey parts, and if my memory serves me right they were pretty cheap in the past. Not so this time, it looks like the price really took a jump.

Anyway; enough of the crying.

This Slow Cooker Turkey Thighs Pot Roast Recipe caught my eye because of another busy afternoon coming up I needed a good, set and forget it type of recipe. I don’t do turkey in the slow cooker very often and thought I would give this a try. There is very little prep time with this recipe, which makes it even better. The seasoning blends well with the turkey and vegetables, and when the turkey is finished cooking all the vegetables are done at about the same time. For a one dish meal I thought this recipe was pretty good, so the next time you want to use your slow cooker give this Slow Cooker Turkey Thighs Pot Roast Recipe a try. Enjoy

  1. Any chance this could be done w/ turkey legs instead? How would cooking time need to adjusted, if so?

  2. Sure you could-just keep the cooking time the same.

    Carrots are missing from the list of ingredients. How many??

  4. Thanks for pointing that out, added the carrots-2 cups baby carrots

  5. Great recipe. Actually, about the price? Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens has them all the time. 2 large for $5-6. Not a bad price. Don’t know about other Loblaws.

  6. looks interesting: what would be the temperature for the oven, F or C? thanks

  7. Slow Cooker on low setting.

  8. I would like to substitute stuffing for veggies. Has anyone made it this way? If so please reply. Thanks!!

  9. Made this today and my husband is begging for more! Thanks for such a great recipe that I will be making over and over again.

    I’m going to try this recipe with apple,sweet onion, Bell pepper, garlic, poultry seasoning and small amount of cayenne pepper just to spice it up some, I live alone and don’t want to cook a whole turkey just for me.

  11. Sound good! Thanks for the comment and I hope you have a Happy Holiday Season.

  12. This came out pretty good! I browned the thighs before I put them in the crock pot.

  13. What changes do I make if using frozen thighs?

  14. I never tried it – i would think just increased cooking time.
