Cooking wild turkey breast in a crock pot is a simple way to enjoy the flavorful meat. You can work on the rest of your meal while the turkey slowly cooks on low heat. Whether it’s a small get-together or a holiday feast, this method of cooking will save you time in the kitchen.


  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4-5 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 2-3 pounds of wild turkey breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley


  1. Preparing the Turkey – Rinse the turkey breasts in cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. Marinating the Turkey – Combine the onion, garlic, thyme, olive oil, pepper and salt in a glass or ceramic bowl to make the marinade. Place the wild turkey breasts into the bowl and cover with the marinade. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Cooking the Turkey – Place the turkey breasts in the crock pot and pour the remaining marinade over the top. Add the white wine and cover with the lid. Cook on low heat for 5-7 hours or on high heat for 3-5 hours.

    Once the turkey is cooked, remove from the pot and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve. Enjoy!
