    Question"s on Turkey Breast

    My wife wants to try a Turkey Breast in the crockpot. I've found Kittencal's recipe that calls for no additional liquid. I've found another recipe that calls for 2 cans of broth/stock. Considering that a crockpot produces a lot of liquid, why add more? I don't want poached Turkey Breast.

    Just thought of brining a Turkey Breast. Does that make sense for the crockpot? Any recipes that brine and cook in the crockpot.? Should I even bother?

    I've done roasts with little or no additional liquid and they work out just fine. I would brine the turkey breast, simply because it is such lean meat and it will tend to dry out, even in the closed environment of the crockpot. I brine breasts for around 4 to 5 hours, since they are a smaller piece of meat.

    It seems the more I search on the Internet, the more problems I can find.

    I found a web site that says if the bird is frozen, they probably used a salt solution to freeze it. If they did, I can't brine the turkey. Have no idea why.

    I brine all natural turkeys as most birds are injected with some type of solution or another. The package would indicate whether or not it has a "solution" in it.
