1 (3 pound)
bone-in turkey breast half
whipped cream cheese spread with garden vegetables
minced fresh parsley

Absolutely delicious. I couldn't get a half turkey breast so I used two large chicken breasts. That was so good I may forget the turkey. :)
I followed the recipe exactly as they are written and it did not turn out like the picture at all. Maybe I misunderstood something in the recipe. The picture shows the turkey in foil? Anyway, not sure why but this recipe did not work for me.
Absolutely delicious. My whole family loved it. I used a 6+ lb turkey breast and doubled the ingredients. The only thing I would do differently is use low-salt soy sauce because it was a little saltly. I am absolutely going to make this again.
Words cannot describe the tenderness of this turkey. Better than any Thanksgiving turkey I have had. Pair it with mashed potatoes for a quick yummy meal. Dont forget to save some of the gravy for those potatoes!
My turkey breast was about 5.75 pounds so I doubled the spice mixture and put it on high in my crockpot for about 4 hours. It made tons of very flavorful juice. I used my quick read thermometer and it read 165. It was done PERFECTLY and so moist even my picky non-turkey eating hubs loved it! I turned the crockpot off and left it in there until the rest of the meal was done. I strained the juices into a pot and mixed in the packet of gravy that came with my turkey breast from Target. It made the most wonderful gravy and the flavor was outstanding.
We went to friends’ for Thanksgiving this year so we had no leftover turkey for sandwiches, which Hubs and I both love. So I decided to give this a try. My turkey breast half weighed just under 2 1/2 lbs, but I made the entire amount of butter/cream cheese mixture. I put it liberally on both sides of the turkey breast and cooked it on high for 2 hrs. and 45 minutes, which in my crock pot was just a bit too long. Next time I will start checking it at 2 1/2 hours, if not sooner. This was good, but I’m not sure I liked the cream cheese in this. I like making a turkey breast in a crock pot, but next time I think I will just season it with Sarah’s Dry Rubbed Chicken seasoning, also on this site.
EVERYONE LOVED IT! VERY moist with good flavor. Had fresh Sage. I had this going when I was at work, it cooked faster then expected so I' suggest your home to watch the timeing. YUMMY
i was apprehensive of this recipe. i managed to buy the last philly cream cheese with garden veggies at publix, (seriously.) i cooked an hour on high then @ 7 hours on low. i used the whole container of cream cheese and doubled all other ingredients for my 6+ lb. turkey breast. it's still moist 3 days later.
