  • 1 box cornbread stuffing mix (6 ounces, Stove Top ®)
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (Swanson ®)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 bags trimmed fresh haricots verts (or French green beans, 8 ounces each Ready Pac ®)
  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions (C&W ®)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, McCormick ®
  • 1 whole boneless skinless turkey breast, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 cans cut sweet potatoes, drained (15 ounces each, Princella ®)
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (10-ounce Campbell's ®)
  • 1/2 cup white wine, Chardonnay
  • 1 packet turkey gravy mix (.95-ounce, Lawry's ®)
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine stuffing mix, chicken broth, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook in microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

    Place green beans and onions in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker.

    In a small bowl, mix together salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Season all sides of the turkey breast with mixture. Insert a pop-up thermometer in the thickest part of the breast. Place in the slow cooker, and surround the turkey breast with the sweet potatoes.

    In a large bowl, stir together mushroom soup, white wine, and gravy mix. Pour over turkey and sweet potatoes. Spoon stuffing mixture around the turkey breast.

    Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours. Check to see that thermometer has popped up before serving.
