    Ridgely's Note:

    This is a great recipe that I use when I need a lot of moist flavorful cooked chicken/turkey. It's great for salads, enchiladas etc. The breast is even moist enough to slice up and serve for dinner or put on sandwiches.

      I just couldn't wait to submit this review, and I'd give you 10* if I could. This was one highly successful experiment! I was really intrigued that you included directions for a frozen breast, because I always seem to have one hanging out in the freezer (I forget to thaw it of course). I plunged gamely ahead. My crockpot is too small of course, but no matter. I oiled the outside, and also salted & peppered the outside (instead of under the skin, which was, of course, frozen to the breast). Added the garlic & onion. Discovered that the lid wouldn't go on, so I wrapped the top in foil, tucking it down between the crock & the outside, and perched the lid on top. I let it go about 10 hours on low, because I was a bit lazy about making the fixings. The result? A beautifully cooked turkey, moist, tender, and infused with a lovely hint of onion & garlic. Bonus - I got a fair amount of yummy stock. Thank you so, so much for this recipe. Now I won't be afraid to buy those sale turkey breasts any longer. A million thank yous!!!!

      Delicious. I've made this several times to rave reviews. I rub the turkey with EVOO and a rosemary sprig or two and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of liquid ( mixture of broth, white wine, lemon juice). Moist and wonderful for the first meal and the meals to come.

      This is SO easy and SO good!! I did everything according to the recipe except I added some smoke seasoning to the turkey to give it a slow smoked flavor. Just perfect!! Thanks for posting!
