Delicious plus easy, healthy, & economical! Based on Chef#251917's recommendation I made this for Top Favorites of 2008 Game. I lined my crockpot with a slow cooker liner and sprayed the turkey legs with cooking spray and then sprinkled on the herbs. I omitted the oil which meant no broth but I had this with Sweet Potatoes in Creamy Cinnamon Sauce so did not need gravy. Our turkey legs were done in 4 hours on high. Thanks WV Mermaid for a keeper. Made for Top Favorites of 2008 tag.

Very YUMMY, tender and very easy. Made as stated using crushed garlic, dried basil & rosemary. My DH said, it was better than he used to get at a Hofbrau where he use to eat lunch. I will be making these again!

This dish is so good it has become a favorite when you want the taste of turkey but it's not time to roast the whole bird. The meat is tender and the gravy it makes is so good. I added a cut-up carrot and some diced onion to the bottom. Each time I make it I try different herbs, whatever I have handy. Definitely a keeper!

They were fall off the bone tender and super juicy. This was so easy and I can't wait to cook it again so I can play around with different fresh herbs. Come turkey season I'm gonna try this with wild turkey legs and wings like another reviewer said they did.

Amazing recipe! I used some herbes de provence in (and all of the seasonings listed here) and put slices of citrus fruit around the turkey legs. It was incredible!

This is a wonderful recipe.  The only thing I did different was to add a little water and chopped onions and celery to the broth.  We love hot or cold turkey sandwiches and this solves the problem of cooking a whole turkey.  I've made this twice and will definitely be making it again!  Thanks so much for such a simple, easy, very tasty recipe! 1/13/09 Made this again the other day, adding celery, onions and carrots this time. Also added a lemon cut in half while it was simmering, then used it for turkey noodle soup. All I can say is "fantabulous".!

Very good! I did 4 quite large legs, they were fall off the bone tender. I did add about one and a half cups of chicken stock, because I wantedt to make soup. There was so much meat on the legs I will be making soup and will have lots to have in the freezer for salads etc. i put the stock in the fridge overnight and removed the fat in the morning so I have almost fat free turkey stock. Thanks for the recipe.
