Reviews for Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast
"Very tasty! I made this in my crock pot by just adding 2T of water to the other liquids, dumping everything in the crock pot instead of on the stove, and cooking on low for 8 hours. I did thicken the gravy on the stove at the end. Great results!"
"This looks like it has possibilities but I'd like to know if anyone has prepared it it a crockpot. I hope to get an answer ASAP. Thanks."
