Cajun turkey breast along with peppers, potatoes, and simple seasonings are all you need for this healthy one-pot slow cooker recipe.
I’m taking a quick small break from my cooking with sauces series (see previous post) with this one. Turkey is my husband’s favorite protein. He’s always asking why we don’t eat it more often and I couldn’t think of an answer. I love turkey too! When I got received my Cajun turkey breast from Jennie-O I was so excited because I love also Cajun/Creole food. Needless to say, this recipe came together very quickly.
Since the turkey is already cooked, you’re really just heating it up and cooking the potatoes and vegetables. When chopping the veggies and taters, try to chop them in even pieces so they cook consistently. Don’t worry about the turkey overcooking. If anything it will be so tender it will fall apart. You can use any type of potato or sweet potato. I used white sweet potatoes.
Add 3 more cups of broth and turn this into a soup!
- 1.5 - 2 lb Jennie-O Hickory Smoked Cajun Turkey Breast
- 1 lb potatoes or sweet potatoes, chopped
- 2 bell peppers, chopped
- 3 celery stalks, chopped
- 15 ounces diced tomatoes
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp cumin
- ¼ tsp pepper
- Add all ingredients to the slow cooker.
- Stir to mix well.
- Cook HIGH 2-3 or LOW 4-6.
If you can’t find a Jennie-O hickory smoked Cajun-style turkey breast, don’t worry. You can use a regular turkey breast but add an additional 2 tsp of Cajun seasoning. This particular turkey is not whole30 or paleo compliant because the ingredients list sugar. However you should be able to find a compliant turkey at your local grocery store or butcher.
I was compensated with a Jennie-O hickory smoked Cajun-style turkey breast for this post but all opinions and recipes are my own. For more about my disclosure policy see here: https://fitslowcookerqueen.com/about/disclosure-policy.
