"I made this for thanksgiving last year, it was a big hit. I loved it because I made it the day before in the crock pot and just heated it up for dinner. Great recipe and I will be making it again :)"
"The marinade, when just made and cold, was wonderful and left me anxious to enjoy this entree. But after it was cooked--whoa. Not so good. Maybe it was the oddness of Dijon mustard and lemon and onion soup mix on turkey; I don't know. Seems like too many competing flavors. I've made this boneless breast dozens of times, and I so prefer it plain over this version. My husband thought it was ok, but he eats just about anything. I unfortunately made this today for T'giving. Wasted an expensive roast. :("
"This turned out great and I cut the recipe in half."
"I have a regular, full sized blender and this amount of marinade only filled it 1/2 full. This is the best tasting turkey ever!"
"Although the turkey was delicious, I found the marinade proportions too large for my blender. Little confused why the marinade portions are listed doubled here compared to what I found in the Taste of Home Slow Cooker recipe book for 2009. Will try again for Thanksgiving."
