Easy Orange Turkey in the Crock Pot

I’ve been trying to do a better job of planning my meals ahead of time lately, so I went to pinterest to look for some easy turkey recipes.
This CrockPot Orange Chicken recipe was (clearly) meant for chicken, but I always have good luck subbing turkey in chicken recipes. I changed the recipe slightly and ended up with sweet orange turkey mixed with crisp tender broccoli and peppers, served with rice.
And it was amazing.

easy orange turkey

1 boneless turkey breast (frozen or thawed)
3/4 cup Smuckers Sweet Orange Marmalade
3/4 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
fresh broccoli, chopped
red, yellow & orange peppers, chopped
Cook turkey breast on LOW in crock pot until meat thermometer registers 165 degrees Farenheit.  (I ALWAYS cook my turkey on LOW and ALWAYS use a meat thermometer.)  For a frozen turkey breast, 6-8 hours will do it.
Drain liquid from crock pot. Cut or shred turkey into smaller pieces. Return to crock pot.
Add cut veggies to crock pot (I used what I had on hand, which was a bunch of broccoli and a few sweet mini-peppers.)
Mix Sweet Orange Marmalade, soy sauce, and barbecue sauce.  Pour over meat & veggies in crock pot, and stir.
Cook on high for 30 more minutes.
Serve with brown rice.

After 30 minutes, the veggies were crisp tender and the sauce had warmed up to create the easiest, tastiest Orange Turkey we’ve ever had!  A piece of equipment broke in the turkey barn, so Bart didn’t get in to eat until after 8 pm, but the crock pot kept everything nice and warm for him.
We will definitely be making this again!
