Slow Cooker Apple BBQ Pulled Turkey

Although it’s not quite Thanksgiving, I have turkey on the brain and one of my favorite ways to prepare it is using a crockpot. Since turkey can quickly dry out in the oven, cooking it in a slow cooker helps maintain more moisture so you have a yummy, juicy turkey breast. This recipe combines turkey breast with apple and barbecue flavors for a delicious fall dish. It would also work great with chicken breast, chicken thighs, or pork.



  • 2 lbs boneless skinless turkey breast
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chile powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth


  1. Add the turkey, onions, and apples to the slow cooker.
  2. Stir together the barbecue sauce, cumin, chile powder, applesauce, garlic, broth, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour over the turkey.
  4. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  5. Shred with 2 forks.
