Reviews for Moist & Tender Turkey Breast
"This was easy, convenient, and the family loved the flavors of rosemary and garlic ever so slightly flavoring the moist turkey. A keeper."
"I was skeptical cooking a turkey breast in the slow cooker. Was amazed at how delicious and moist it was! Made the recipe almost exact, omitted the brown sugar and used low sodium chicken broth instead of water. Will certainly make again and will experiment with other herbs! Thank you Heidi"
"Love using the slow cooker to cook a turkey and this was a great recipe for it. The turkey came out with lots of flavor And very tender. I also tried the same recipe but used my pressure cooker and it turned out great in there too."
"Easy way to cook turkey, but the family prefers the oven"
"Very good! I had a turkey breast that wasn't quite 6 lbs, it was done at 3.5 hours. I didn't have fresh rosemary so I used dried that I mixed in with the salt, pepper, and brown sugar."
