Turkey Thighs with Cranberry Sauce Slow Cooker Recipe

Next best thing to turkey in the oven is turkey in the crockpot, complete with cranberry sauce. I love turkey and doing it in the crock pot makes it so much simpler than either doing a whole turkey in the oven or even doing a roast turkey roll. The chili gives the turkey a bit of a flavor kick and the house smells amazing while it cooks too.
