Cooking times vary from between five hours and 10 hours. The cooking time depends on the weight of the turkey breast and the slow cooker's temperature. Check the breast after a few hours to avoid overcooking. Use a meat thermometer to ensure accuracy. Poultry should be cooked to 165 degrees.

Add onions, carrots, and fresh herb sprigs, such as rosemary, thyme, or sage, to the Crock-Pot for more flavor. Place the vegetables on the bottom and sides of the Crock-Pot with the meat on top for even cooking.

For an herb-rubbed turkey breast, mix 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and paprika in a bowl. Cover the turkey breast in olive oil, and rub the herb mixture into the turkey breast. Add 1/2 cup of water to the Crock-Pot, and cook the breast on low for five to six hours.
