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. :)

Good flavor (although mild) but dry. I did 8 hours on low. I think next time I will try 7 hours and perhaps some broth in the bottom and/or double the cream cheese mixture. I did spread it both under and over the skin but there wasn't enough to cover the bottom.

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.

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.

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.

A hit with my son, 19! I had to use bone-in chicken breasts which were a little over 4 lbs. So, I adjusted seasonings. My grocery store also didn't have whipped garden veg. cream cheese, so I bought the regular and then whipped it with a little water to get the same texture first. I served with jasmine rice and broccoli for a hearty and very easy meal. I couldn't follow the recipe exactly, but you can tell when you are starting with a 5-star recipe!
