This makes a tangy flavored meat for sandwiches and salads. Marinade could be used for chicken breast, also. Adjust cooking time down.

Tremendous sale on turkey breasts and I remembered seeing this recipe. Always looking for easy meals for my crock pot, this seemed just perfect as it would yield lots of leftovers more many different uses. I marinated my turkey for 20 hours before cooking. The results were just marvelous a falling apart tender meat which was bursting with citrus and herbal flavors. I just loved it. The pan drippings were too strong to use alone so I mixed two parts strained and skimmed drippings with one part broth and thickened ever so slightly with some arrowroot. Served with mashed cauliflower and steamed broccoli and carrots it was a divine comfort meal. Thanks mikekey. Made for the Went to the Market Game.
