Slow Cooker Turkey Breast


The wonders of a Crock Pot amaze me.  Yesterday for dinner, I made  a very moist and flavorful turkey breast in my crock pot.  Yes, in my crock pot.  I was amazed how easy and how delicious it turned out.

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website.  It is very easy and requires very little prep time.  I changed the recipe very slightly.  First, I did not remove the turkey skin.  Next after brushing the turkey with oil and rubbing it with the herbs and spices, I browned the breast in a skillet on all sides.  Next, I transferred the turkey to the slow cooker, but instead of adding water, I used white wine.  Mmm, this really made the turkey good and it smelled wonderful.   I cooked as directed and served.  I served it with my Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole .  Good thing I have a few Crock Pots:)

This was a great meal.  It was the Families "Thanksgiving in August mini meal".  I added a little cranberry sauce and we were set.  It was enjoyed by all:)
