Garlic, Rosemary and Orange Slow Cooked Turkey Breast

I had a large turkey breast in the freezer that needed using up, so i decided to slow cook it to use for snacks. It was great in sandwiches, on a baked spud, with a salad or just to pick at!


1 large turkey breast roast
2 garlic cloves sliced
¼ cup light soy sauce
2 tsp mustard powder
1 tbsp honey 3 syns
50ml freshly squeezed orange juice 0.5 syn
1 tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
salt and pepper


Make small holes all over the turkey breast and push in the slices of garlic. Mix together the rest of the ingredients. Place the turkey into a slow cooker, pour over the marinade and cook on low for 8 hours, you may want to baste every now and then.
When the turkey is cooked, remove and let it rest for 10 minutes, keep the sauce in the slow cooker you will need it. Using two forks shred the turkey, return it to the slow cooker and toss it into the remaining sauce. 
You can serve it hot or cold, the flavour improves if you leave it in the fridge until the next day.
