An excellent meal! The basting sauce really compliments the flavor of the turkey without overpowering the meal. I served it with candied carrots and green beans. I used a whole turkey breast, and doubled the sauce to accomodate the larger turkey breast, cooking it slowly in a covered roaster in the oven (about 3 1/2 hours at 300 F).
Loved this recipe & will make it often. It tasted great & cut very well. Added the 1/4 milk for gravy which was all gone on the first serving. I served this for dinner, then in pasta. Finished it off with turkey sandwiches. Thank you Stephanine C
What a wonderful recipe! I made it as written, just doubling the sauce for a larger turkey breast. The leftover sauce has been tremendous over cooked carrots and green beans. This will be a "regular" for me!
My AC is broken so I was looking for a crockpot recipe but I didn't want a stew or casserole type. When I ran across this recipe, I hit on a winner! This was fabulous. I followed your directions exactly. Fifteen minutes before we ate, I added 1/4 cup milk to make a "gravy" to spoon over the turkey. I served it with Mashed Potatoes and steamed carrots. It was like Thankgiving in August and I didn't have to heat up the kitchen! I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
This would have been good as posted. Decided to use suggestions form a few other cooks and a couple additions of my own. Doubled sauce. Added milk at the end. Also added a dalop of sour cream and some grated parm. Shreaded chicken breast in sauce and served over wheat pasta with steamed broccoli. Yum!
I didn't have vegetable flavored cream cheese so subbed in what I had....the new roasted garlic flavor and this dish was fabulous. We will be making a wine white sauce with the gravy, use some of the leftover breast, some shrimp, bacon, leek with pasta tonight.....can hardly wait!
This was good, but pretty dry. This could be my fault, as it ended up cooking a few hours longer than it should due to a doggie emergency. The cream cheese coating was odd too. Good flavor, but not something I will make again.
This was a little strange. It tasted fine, but no one loved it.
OMG! This was the most tasty, moist delicious turey I have ever made. I was a little leary about the lemon and garlic on turkey, but WOW, the lemon made it so tasty. I will always use this recipe, and make it more then twice a year. Thanks for another great recipe.
