Lemony Turkey Breast

"Lemon and a hint of garlic add a lovely touch to these moist slices of slow-cooked turkey breast. I usually serve the gravy over a combination of white and brown rice, along with broccoli for a healthy meal. --Lynn Laux of Ballwin, Missouri"

  1. Remove skin from turkey. Pat turkey dry with paper towels; spray turkey with nonstick cooking spray. Place breast side up in a slow cooker. Squeeze half of the lemon over turkey; sprinkle with lemon-pepper and garlic salt. Place lemon halves under turkey. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees F. Remove turkey and keep warm. Discard lemon.
  2. For gravy, pour cooking liquid into a measuring cup; skim fat. In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Gradually stir in cooking liquid. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with turkey.

maybe I overcooked it, but the turkey and gravy were very bitter tasting. I was able to use the turkey, but threw out the gravy and made a packet.

This was okay. I like that it is a very healthy recipe. I used a 2-1/2 lb. boneless, skinless turkey breast (aka "turkey london broil" in some supermarkets). Just make sure that if you use a bon...

This method of using the slow cooker yielded an incredibly moist and delicious turkey! I had a 7.5 lb bone in breast. I didn't cut it in half, i just seasoned it (on the skin and underneath) and...

very tender, the lemon can overpower the turkey. Next time I'm going to use the prepackaged gravy to help.

This was OK...I probably could have made it better, but it turned out a little too lemony for our tastes. Also, I cooked it as directed in the slow cooker and the turkey came out pretty dry. T...

I found it to be pretty much inedible –– the sauce was very bland except an extreme bitterness, perhaps from too much lemon, to the point that I couldn't enjoy it. (My boyfriend could eat it wit...
