WOW! This is a wonderful dish! The turkey is very flavorful and moist; the the raspberry sauce is irresistable! A very attractive presentation. I cooked the turkey breast in the crockpot because I was going to be gone all day; about 9 hours on low and 2 hours on high. It took about 30 - 45 minutes for the sauce to simmer down to a good consistency. I kept the turkey breast warm in the crockpot while making the raspberry sauce. Served with wild rice pilaf blend and a salad, this is a great company meal.
