Add ¼ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper to the bottom of the slow cooker.
Add in turkey pieces, skin side up.
Top with remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Pour the liquid left behind in the slow cooker into a measuring cup and remove as much of the fat as you can.
Melt the butter into a saucepan on medium-high heat and combine with flour.
