SO EASY AND SO GOOD! I made a few modifications: Using a 7.25lb Bone-in Turkey Breast I layered the bottom of my crockpot with 3 cut-up celery stalks, one sweet yellow onion, 1/4 cup chicken broth, and 1/2 tbsp. minced garilc. I placed the turkey breast on top of the celery and onion, rubbed the turkey inside and out with the onion soup packet (lifting up the skin on top of the breast and adding the seasoning right on the meat works great!), also rubbed some oregano, sage, thyme, and 1/2 tbsp minced garlic on the breast. Drizzled the breast with 1 tbsp. melted butter. Cooked on high 1 hour, low for 7 hours more. Perfect moist turkey! Smells and tastes great, plenty of leftovers for sandwiches, casseroles, or enchiladas! Will be a simple cold-weather staple for me.

Excellent!! I made this tonight on a whim. I was going to grill our 6.5 lb turkey breast, but thought I'd give this a try. The only thing I really did differently was smear a couple of pats of butter on the inside of my slow cooker ( as some suggested) and I used dry herb and garlic soup mix that I had on hand. There is little preparation, I started the procedure at 7 am and didn't turn the cooker off until 4 pm and left it on warm for 1-1/2 hours while I got busy with other things. This turkey breast browned nicely near the edges and lightly on top, it fell apart as I took it out and there was plenty of delicious juice in the pot. The meat was succulent, with a melt in your mouth quality. I didn't have time to make gravy out of the juice, so I just set it out as it was; it was wonderful on the turkey and potatoes I served. No additional seasoning needed at all. As a working mom, this was a godsend, and my husband and teenage children were very very pleased with the results (all, including me, were VERY skeptical at first)turkey breast in a slow cooker...ewww. I'm going to share this recipe with my friends, it seems wrong not to.

I like to put just enough water to cover the bottom of the crockpot. Place the turkey in, surround it with quartered onions and carrots, brush the bird with melted butter and then season it well. This makes a delicious turkey breast and I use the leftover turkey breast for casseroles, etc. in the future as it freezes well. The broth can be strained and used as well. Thank you.
