What a shame that I was the only one home while this was cooking! The aroma was awesome, predicting what a great turkey dinner we were in for. I had a small boneless breast, about 3 pounds, so I adjusted the method, measurements and cooking time to accommodate it, but other than rubbing the roast with some olive oil before sprinkling it with salt, pepper and a little chopped rosemary, I made no substitutions or omissions of ingredients. I cooked it about 6-1/2 hours on low. This was fragrant, immensely flavorful and so tender and moist. The juices it gave off during cooking made for excellent gravy. When I’m the first reviewer of a recipe, as I am here, and it turns out this good I couldn’t be more pleased to review it. I served this with Ann’s Rice Pilaf, Chic Green Beans, recipes also from this site, and a tossed green salad.

Bland, bland, bland. I prepared this exactly as stated, and it was just okay. Lacked flavor, and it was DRY! Dry in a slow cooker??? Who knew that was possible. I made it for a dinner party, and I'm just thankful I made the "Awesome broccoli-cheese casserole", because it saved the whole dinner.

Very nice recipe. I used chicken broth instead of white wine. The turkey breast was very juicy and tender.

Superb, husband loves it. I use dried herbs instead of fresh. Have had trouble getting hold of a decent sized turkey breast so have made with turkey steaks (adjusted cooking time) as well a huge butterflied breast I found for sale at the butchers (put the required ingredients inside then rolled and tied before putting into the slow cooker).

This was so easy and quick! Cooked a 7lb breast on high for about 5 hrs and it just fell apart. I did use half the wine and half chicken broth as another user suggested. Thank you for the awesome recipe it was so moist and juicy and a big hit with the family!

I use this all the time! I also add baby carrots and fresh sage. Plus I never measure the wine nor the herbs. My kids call it my drunken turkey, but it has the most delicious aroma when it is cooking and the meat is very moist.

I could only find a 3 lb boneless turkey breast. It did not have a cavity (I guess since it's boneless), so I put the thyme and rosemary sprigs on the very bottom of the crockpot. Then I placed 32 oz. peeled baby carrots, one bunch of chopped celery, and one medium chopped onion on top of the herbs. I topped that with the pats of butter, but only 1/3 of a cup instead of half. I placed the turkey on top of that and sprinkled with a little bit of salt and pepper. Then I poured in the wine and cooked it on low for 6 hours. My crockpot tends to run hot or cook fast, or something of the sort. I think I inadvertently poured a little more than half the bottle of wine in the crockpot. It was delicious. It smelled wonderful while cooking, the whole family enjoyed it, and the turkey was very moist. I served this with some stuffing on the side. This is an excellent meal, and I will definitely be making it again. Thank you for posting!
