Helpful hints

  • Whole turkey breast may be substituted for boneless turkey.
  • Spray slow cooker pot with nonstick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner for easier cleanup.
  • Frozen onion and carrots may be used instead of fresh vegetables.
  • A very small portion of regular bouillon adds flavor.  Portion control helps keep sodium content within the limits of a low-sodium diet.
  • Serve with noodles, rolls, margarine and fruit salad.
