"I was skeptical at first about fixing turkey in a slow cooker," admits Kathy Kittell from Lenexa, Kansas. "But once I tasted this dish, I was hooked. With a little cornstarch to thicken the juices, the gravy is easily made."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

"I made this for a small get together on Thanksgiving and it turned out great! The gravy was one of the intriguing features of this, little sweet, little spicy, and went extremely well with the turkey and side of mashed potatoes. It doesn't have a pronounced citrus flavor however everything blended together very well. Thanks for a great turkey that's out of the ordinary!"

"I had 3 turkey breast rolls, wrapped with bacon and rosemary and tied (bought this way) that I cooked in the slow cooker following this recipe. I forgot the paprika but followed everything else and my turkey rolls were to die for along with the gravy! Since I was cooking them one day and eating the next, I was able to drain off the grease (there was not too much) and then thicken the gravy. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!"

"Good recipe, but seems to be lacking a little bit in the citrus flavor. Still good though."
