Recipe by Sally Anne
"This is a delicious and tender turkey breast. The recipe fuses the traditional flavors of bacon, turkey, and ranch seasoning with the moistness of my beer-can chicken."

1 (1 ounce) packet
ranch dressing mix, divided
whole bone-in turkey breast, rinsed and patted dry
I doubled the amount of ranch per butter for under the skin, and increased the sprinkled butter over top some, but not a lot. I did this because another reviewer said that they could not taste the ranch. With my increases, the taste of the ranch was faint and I felt it more increased the saltiness, which was not really desired. However, the overall taste of this turkey breast was wonderful and the breast was juicy. I would not increase the ranch over what this recipe calls for again. I have to admit that half-way through the cooking procedure I was a bit skeptical. It really didn't smell that great. But when the time was right, the flavor was there. However, I wouldn't quite rate this 4 stars, but more like 4.6 or so, just enough to tip it to 5. A turkey, slow cooked looks pale, mushy and unappealing. Add bacon and it looks worse. After it was fully cooked, I put this under the broiler to brown up just a bit. I feel this recipe needs that extra step. Don't expect a big ranch flavor with this recipe because you won't find it. But you will find a nice balanced flavor that yields a tender juicy bird.
I used a fryer instead of turkey breast. I also didn't put it in the slow cooker, but baked it for 6 hours at 250. The kids loved it!
I used bone-in chicken thighs (4 total) in the slow cooker. It smelled delicious, so I was super excited. The chicken was moist and tender, but I only gave it three stars because I could barely taste the ranch seasoning, which was kind of a bummer.
