  • 1 bone-in turkey breast 4 to 5 pounds, skin removed
  • ½ cup Moroccan seasoning (preferably IronChef Seasoning)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 hot pepper cayenne, chopped
  • 1 medium white onion sliced
  • 1 - 2 carrot peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Moroccan seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water


  • To prepare the brine, in a large container, mix Moroccan Seasoning, sugar, hot pepper and onion. Add about 8 cups of water and stir until most of the salt and sugar have melted about 3 - 5 minutes. After cleaning the turkey breast and removing the skin, submerge in brine, cover and place in refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Longer preferably.
  • Remove the breast from the brine. Shake off any moroccan seasoning and pat dry.
  • In a small boil, combine, oil, the garlic, Moroccan seasoning, paprika, thyme, sage, black pepper; rub over turkey. In a 6-qt. slow cooker, add chopped carrots and add water. Place turkey breast on top of carrots. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until tender.


Depending on your slow cooker or crockpot, adjust cooking time. For more flavor, brine longer.
