"When we were first married, I didn't have an oven, so I made this tender turkey in the slow cooker," recalls Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "These days, I rely on this recipe because it frees up the oven to make other dishes for large get-togethers."

  • 1 boneless skinless turkey breast half (2-1/2 pounds)

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes

  • 1/4 cup cold water


  1. Place turkey in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with seasonings. Top with mushrooms. Pour wine over all. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours (a thermometer inserted in turkey should read at least 165°).

  3. Transfer cooking juices to a small saucepan; bring to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve turkey with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.

"My family loved it and demanded recipe before they left my house. I used the wine and also added chicken broth to increase the amount of gravy."

"I accidently purchased turkey breast with a bone in i cut it off the bone before cooking. I also used fresh mushrooms. As I put the ingredients into the slow cooker I was very skeptical. As it cooked the house smelled so good. The gravy was easy to make, and the flavor was incredible. The turkey was moist and had terrific flavor. I served it with stuffing and cheesy broccoli and cauliflower. We called it mini thanksgiving, but it was easy enough for a Monday night. Definately a keeper."
