It’s TURKEY SZN, which means your oven is about to get a real workout. That’s all well and good, but why not switch things up a little and try some slow-cooker turkey recipes instead? Not only can a slow cooker “roast” whole turkeys and turkey parts, it can also stew and braise the meat into soups, stews and chilis. And if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, that’s not only great news for your oven, but also yourself—with some preparation, you can let the slow-cooker do all the work.

Like all slow-cooker recipes, these slow-cooker turkey recipes are easy and can be cooked while you’re at work, out with friends, or just at home doing something else. Just combine everything in the slow-cooker, and then hours later, your meal is ready to be served.

Whether you’re searching for a Thanksgiving turkey recipe that doesn’t take up your whole oven, or you just want a few everyday recipes to add to your arsenal, the slow-cooker turkey recipes below are bound to deliver.
